Giving and Receiving Hospitality [Worship, Music, and Arts]

Giving and Receiving Hospitality [Worship, Music, and Arts]

Faith Practices(r) series

Explore worship, music, and the arts in order to explore creative moments that can deepen a person or community's sense of God's worth-ship.


This book is for worship planners who want to explore worship that is more hospitable as well as worship that includes the musical and visual arts--for persons who want to explore their worship experience further.

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, and surprising growth.
