Samaritan community reading project : engaging congregation and community in love of God and neighboring
"How does a church, capturing God's vision of shalom, model a commitment to social holiness as a neighbor intentionally gathering neighbors to respond to a practical need in the neighborhood? The author embarks on a Christian service project, in which Capleville United Methodist Church and its neighbors implemented Samaritan Community Reading Project, which included an eight-week summer book club for families of pre-k through kindergarteners and the installation of a free library and community bookcases in the neighborhood. Parent surveys, reading logs, and reading autobiographies were collected to help facilitate relationships with new neighbors and gauge program effectiveness." -- Leaf .
