Where Change Begins

Change. It’s something we all encounter, and, to a degree, something we all desire. We don’t want change for change’s sake, but we all want change for the better. The question is: How? And, where do we begin?

In a city like New York of 8.5 million people, trying to affect change and bring about something that lasts can feel overwhelming. Everyday, millions of individuals hurry between place-to-place, too busy to slow down and enjoy a meal, too on edge to care for their neighbor, surrounded by millions of other individuals yet somehow all alone. In a city so massive, where does change even begin?

The answer is simple: it starts in our Vicinity. Change starts wherever we are. It begins with our everyday encounters. It starts with our daily interactions. Change happens when we become aware of who is around us, and we choose to bring about something good, something hopeful, and something grace-filled into those engagements. That’s what makes those connections meaningful.

But change doesn’t just start with us. Change starts with you. It’s not just our vicinity. It’s your vicinity. Vicinity.NYC is not just about us, or New York City; it’s about you. It’s about empowering you to affect change no matter who you are or where you live. Wherever you are, there is a vicinity you can engage and a vicinity you can change.

Vicinity.NYC is a social campaign through Meta Church, a new church plant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Scroll down to learn more about Vicinity.NYC and receive free resources.
