your open home...

>> March 4, 2009

Everybody's hospitality personality is different. We get that.

But everybody has a unique way of sharing God's blessings through their home/food/warmth/other talents.

For us, it's pretty purposeful. When we move to a new church district, we always dedicate our new home for God's service to the people in this place. We see our home as a place for anyone who needs rest, counseling, food, or whatever else to bring them closer to God.

Of course, we keep family boundaries too - but that particular brand of hospitality is just who we are. We have people for dinner almost every weekend after church, bible study for young professionals on Friday nights, pizza nights, socials - you name it... And we find that it's a huge blessing. The most amazing conversations happen around cups of tea on Friday nights. People feel warm and welcomed and safe.

For us, hospitality is probably the foundation of our pastoral ministry. But that's just us.

What about you? How do you interpret the biblical calling to share our hearts and homes through hospitality? What's your specialty?

Have you had an extra special blessing that came from being hospitable when you didn't expect it?
