“We’ll miss you. You know how to neighbor.”

Those words came from neighbors across the street as the moving company was loading our household goods. They used the word “neighbor” as a verb. They also said “You know how to ‘coffee.’”

We would often find that elderly couple sitting on their front porch sipping coffee with a welcoming smile and an extra cup of coffee for anyone passing by. Jean and I would typically stop and visit before continuing on our walks or chores. While there were many in the neighborhood, few took the time or effort to “neighbor.”

This raises a question: “Are we merely in a fellowship or do we ‘fellowship?’”
