Have a yard sale (or something else) with a focus on making connections with your neighbours

John Lord talks about seeing all we do through “a lens of relationship.”   One of our network facilitators, helping to organize a yard sale with some folks with disabilities, wondered with the team “how we could make this an opportunity for connection?”   They got name tags for everyone, made lemonade and when anyone came to purchase things they introduced themselves and the people they supported, served them some lemonade, and chatted.    Neighbours learned the names of the folks who lived there and started stopping to chat with them.   What other things do we do that, if we see the event through a lens of relationship, could we do differently?
