Create Your Own 4th Sunday Action

Some folks like to take 4th Sunday to develop connections with brothers and sisters by attending another church in their neighborhood (read Deirdre Curle's reflections here) or gathering others to share a meal or help out a neighbor in community. What is a way that you feel nudged to express God's love and acceptance and seek the "welfare of the community?"
