What a joyful gift of love it is to be invited to share a meal and fellowship with others! As we invite others to eat with us, we do so guided by Christian Hospitality which is more than a clean house and a nice meal. As followers of Jesus, our lives are shaped by the values and practices of the Lord. This month we will consider some of these values and practices of hospitality, consider how they take shape in our lives and why they matter so much in our disconnected world.

Living as a faithful disciple in our world offers real challenges.

All the Feels

What would it look like for us to talk honestly about the feelings we experience without hiding them from God and others? Knowing God created all these emotions and understands can give us “all the feels.”
