Hospitality is learning to be a grateful guest, not just the host. It is giving to the most vulnerable, with no hope of reciprocity. It’s being a true friend to the lowly, never seeking to climb the social ladder. Contrary to an individualistic protection of our own personal privacy and space, and the loving of others based upon our own convenience and schedule, the tradition of hospitality was an expression of the words of Jesus, who taught us that to find our lives, we must lose them.
This commonplace understanding in the ancient Christian practice of hospitality was central to the life and teachings of Jesus and his earliest followers. But in this quickly changing world, this kind of life often seems alien to even the most devout followers of Jesus.
Join us online for Triennial 2021, where we will Reimagine Hospitality. Let us reimagine what true biblical hospitality looks like in our world today, opening our personal and communal lives to our neighbor and anyone who is in need.
