Honoring everyone is the beginning of hope. The Christ talked about hospitality in myriad ways. He told a story about a father who would never turn away a self-regarding son in need of love and care. He told a story about a shepherd who, leaving the sheep in the fold crawled through the wildlands to find a lost sheep. He exemplified deep hospitality, in eating with undesirable people and seeing the spark of creation in their eyes. Is there a way to take this deep welcome, as modeled by Jesus, and apply it to our welcome at Church on the Square? Is there a way to apply it to your own relationships? This could be a covenant to stretch your understanding of neighbor. This could be a covenant to help notice the people with which you, maybe unconsciously, prefer to spend time. It also is a way to commit to the constant welcome and maintenance of the resource of our physical plant. How can we make this space as inviting as possible?
