“Widening the Welcome: God’s Gift of Hospitality”
Dr. David Jensen
Professor and Administrator at Austin Seminary
Hospitality is often described as a Christian virtue, but it is often misunderstood,” Dr. Jensen said. “Much more than a posture of welcoming, or ‘niceness,’ hospitality is a characteristic of God’s life for the world in Jesus Christ. God graces us with hospitality and we respond to God by showing hospitality to others.
At the retreat, we will explore some of the ways Christians have practiced hospitality throughout history and reflect on how we might embody hospitality today.
