The journey into the neighbourhood often begins as a journey of the heart.
Our search for purpose, meaning, and hope might be closer than we think. Preston Pouteaux takes readers into his buzzing apiary and then out into the neighbourhood to see the world from a whole new perspective. Beautifully original and inspiring, 'The Bees of Rainbow Falls' is a welcome surprise for the new neighbourhood imagination.
Into the Neighbourhood is a cross-Canada one week journey to four Canadian cities. David Fitch, Karen Wilk, and Preston Pouteaux will host a two day conversation in each city exploring themes of neighbourhood, church, and the Canadian context for both. To learn more, visit Forge Canada.
Preston is a syndicated columnist with !3 Ways. His column originally began and continues in the Chestermere Anchor where every week Preston explores themes of neighbourhood and faith in a way that encourages us to bring out the best in others and reminds us that everyone matters. Written in an approachable and personal style, 'Into the Neighbourhood' tells stories, inspires action, surprises, and encourages us to never give up as we work to find meaning and joy in the communities we call home.
Created to be read from our front porch, readers of Pouteaux’s column describe it as a welcome weekly reflection with a fresh tone that sparks new conversations and connections. Learn more about including 'Into the Neighbourhood' in your publication, visit Columns by 13 Ways.
