12 Neighbors is a film series exploring what it truly means to love your neighbor. These high-quality videos show how churches and individuals are loving their neighbors in bold and innovative ways across the U.S. and Canada, such as:
- understanding systems of injustice,
- spending themselves,
- doing development,
- creating contexts for community, and
- starting with strengths to love and serve one another.
Each video features stories of people doing each of these things, living out Jesus’s call to love our neighbors as ourselves. The featured programs include Jobs for Life, ESL teaching to refugees, a blended housing complex for families in need and older adults, a community food center, and more. Videos may be watched in order or individually, as they also can stand alone.
Each film is 12-16 minutes long and comes with discussion questions for small groups. Trailers and social media graphics are also available. Each of these resources is a completely free download, so that groups may use them regardless of funding or location. These videos could be a great catalyst for discussion and ideas for a small group, community program, or just a group of friends looking to make a change.
