Crossing the Road to Love our Neighbor

The Samaritan Project is a new ministry of Alleluia designed to foster conversations and understanding among diverse peoples.  In a society that has increasingly become “siloed”, where we tend to spend time in our own silos with people just like us, the call to build relationships across cultures, ethnicities, race and socio-economics is imperative.  It is only when we get to know the “other” that we can begin to understand their challenges and empathize with their reality in meaningful ways.  The Samaritan Project wants to encourage and highlight learning opportunities to help us to enter into relationships with a diversity of people.  The goal is to build mutual respect and understanding as we are reminded that we are all God’s beloved children.
