Loving the Neighbor

Barbara Brown Taylor writes,

At its most basic level, the everyday practice of being with other people is the practice of loving the neighbor as the self.  More intricately, it is the practice of coming face-to-face with another human being, preferably someone different enough to qualify as a capital “O” Other – and at least entertaining the possibility that this is one of the faces of God (An Altar in the World).

In what concrete ways will you go about loving your neighbors this week?  Where might you see the face of God in your neighborhood today?
