Hospitality that challenges us is the very nature of God
Leadership and hospitality go hand in hand
Radical hospitality changes people
The Hymn of Decision 183 I’ve Found a Friend, O Such a Friend
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
