It's time for a return to a simple, practical lifestyle, getting along, helping one another! God created us as social beings. Christians' early survival was dependent on one another. That day has come again, says a modern Mennonite. Look at our historical, Christian roots. Consider where our society is headed. You need not become a hermit or withdraw from life, but it's time that you give some real thought to what is important. Relationships. Helping. Encouraging.

Jesus told us that the greatest commandment is to love God with all of our heart, soul, strength, and mind and the second greatest is to love our neighbor as ourselves. We often emphasize the vertical relationship with God, while the horizontal relationships with our neighbors are neglected. Simon Schrock has written a gentle reminder to each of us about our duty to our fellow man. At one time or another, everyone needs a helping hand, an encouraging pat on the back, or simply someone to listen. One Anothering prompts us to be genuine and loving in our relationships with Christ as our example.

This book can enrich the quality of our experience with others at home, at work, and at worship.
