We have heard it time and time again, Love thy neighbor. But…what does that mean in our lives, now? Recently I learned about the new book “Glad You’re Here” Written by Walker Hayes and his neighbor and dear friend, Craig Allen Cooper. Their story is one that goes against how so many of us view neighbors in the most refreshing, culture-shifting way.
As the world grows increasingly distant, I wanted to have this conversation because those in my very own community have had the greatest impact on my life. Neighbors have celebrated with me, mourned with me, in many senses were the community that raised me, and the thought of loosing this profound connection saddens me. Yet, it doesn’t have to be this way! This profound story of authenticity, generosity and connection is one we know will give you a glimpse of what’s possible!
Through this conversation Craig will walk us through:
How his early neighborhood relationships impacted him.
How he came to meet the Hayes Family through natural ‘friend chemistry’.
What it looks like to know your neighbors’ needs and respond.
The importance of time in a relationship.
How to embrace all of life’s seasons in relationship.
We know that you will crave more of this story! To learn more about Craig & Walker’s relationship be sure to pick up their book here! Also, because I know it will move you as much as it did me, Listen to Walker’s song written about today’s guest titled Craig.
I was living in Thailand, longed for community, starting opening my door and filling my table. Now I’m living ‘charcuterie’ as a way of life and teaching what I learned about living intentionally everyday.
