Radical Hospitality

"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God" (Romans 15.7).

Do we love God with all our heart, mind and soul so much that we can't help but share that with others? That shall be our goal as Disciples of Jesus and as part of the Body of Christ. Trinity UMC has committed itself to show radical hospitality, in other words, to go above and beyond in the way that we invite, welcome, include and support our neighbors. I recently was encouraged by the enthusiasm of those gathered at our small group discussion on hospitality. People were so eager to examine what it is that we do in every ministry of the church, a willingness to put everything on the table to improve and strengthen our hospitality. I invite you to pray about what it is that you can do, or what our church can do to radically invite and welcome others to Christ. If you feel so moved, add your comments to this blog so others can begin to pray and share as well. May God Bless you on your Discipleship Journey.
