Giving and Receiving Hospitality [Daily Life]

Giving and Receiving Hospitality [Daily Life]

Faith Practices(r) series

This book focuses on the fluidity in hospitality. The one who invites is both host and guest as surprising connections are uncovered.


The New Testament word for stranger is also translated as host and guest. Hospitality is never a one way street, but a circle or roundabout that gives and receives. The one who invites and the one invited are each in turn host and guest. While sharing back and forth, we uncover connections, empathy, surprising growth and others' agency.

This book focuses on the fluidity and mutuality in hospitality in three contexts: household and family, individual and personal, and workplace and community. It is aimed at adults 18 and older who have a career or are students.
