Week 23: Hospitality
This daily post is designed to help you live into our New Room Society covenant of practicing daily prayer together. Below is today’s daily practice. If you missed the overview on day one, visit Week 23: Hospitality.
Friday: The Freedom of Hospitality
“Hospitality means primarily the creation of free space where the stranger can enter and become a friend instead of an enemy. Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place. It is not to bring men and women over to our side, but to offer freedom not disturbed by dividing lines.” Henri J.M. Nouwen, Reaching Out: The Three Movements of the Spiritual Life
