What’s the most important thing you can do to make a difference in the world?
“Bring chicken soup to your neighbour.”
Yup. You read it correctly.
In the recently released book, Deepening Community: Finding Joy Together in Chaotic Times, author Paul Born says the answer to this tough question is to bring chicken soup to your neighbour.
“The answer is simple,” Born says, “But the act of bringing soup…well, that takes work. It requires that you know your neighbour. It requires that you know they are not vegetarian and like soup. It requires that you know them well enough and communicate regularly enough to know they are sick. And you must have enough of a relationship to know what they prefer when they are sick, whether it is chicken soup, pho, chana masala, or even ice cream.”
