Radical Hospitality – Welcoming the Stranger

RADICAL HOSPITALITY –  “I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” (Mt.25:35)

Last fall we began exploring the Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations suggested by Bishop Robert Schnase in his book by the same title. This year we will continue to work on strengthening each of these vital practices.  It is not enough for us to just know about them; we must incorporate them in our lives, in what we say and what we do, both as individuals and as a congregation.  This Sunday we will focus again on Radical Hospitality, specifically on how we can Welcome the Stranger as scripture bids us to do (see Deuteronomy 10:18-19 and Matthew 25:31-40).  May God help us grow in the breadth and depth of our hospitality as we welcome people into our church home.

blessings, Ernie
