Romans 12:13

Share with God’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

Now the overseer must be above reproach, the husband of but one wife, temperate, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach.


1 Peter 4: 8-9

Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling.


This is the word of God for the people of God.

Thanks be to God.

Hospitality that challenges us is the very nature of God

Leadership and hospitality go hand in hand

Radical hospitality changes people

The Dismissal with Blessing

Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

We go in the name of the Lord.


God has shown you what is good.

What does the Lord require of us

But to do justice,

And to love kindness,

And to walk humbly with our God?


Go in peace!

Then the king will say to those on his right

“Come, you who are blessed by my Father;

take your inheritance,

the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat,

I was thirsty and  you gave me something to drink

I was a stranger and you invited me in.”

Matthew 25: 34-36
