- Practice hospitality with the next video you rent. Set aside any tendency to criticize, any need to give a "thumbs up/thumbs down" response or to set standards for the acting and directing. Befriend the film, entrusting yourself to its images. Afterwards, talk about what you have learned from this approach.
- Volunteer to be part of a welcome wagon project in your community. If none exists, work with your neighbors to produce an introduction to the community, illustrating it with pictures of special places.
- Find out what you can do to support the work of community organizations that are providing food, shelter, and legal and financial assistance to homeless people, immigrants, and refugees. Don't overlook the groups who are responding to international crises, such as the International Rescue Committee and Doctors Without Borders.
