Hospitality: Sharing God's Welcome
By Tammy Lindle
This resource focuses on reclaiming the biblical art of hospitality—the obligation of disciples to care for physical, social, and spiritual needs—and of welcoming strangers and guests into individual and corporate fellowship by creating a space for others to enter and be received as a friend.
In addition to the theoretical discussions, each of the six chapters includes a scripture focus with questions for individual or group reflection, a Community of Christ story of hospitality in practice, and a list of practical helps for congregations. A gifts assessment questionnaire is also provided, as well as congregational guest surveys. This is a valuable resource for congregations looking to share God’s welcome with their community.
