on hospitality

Hospitality, rather than being something you achieve, is something you enter. It is an adventure that takes you where you never dreamed of going. It is not something you do, as much as it is someone you become. You try and you fail. You try again. You make room for one person at a time, you give one chance at a time, and each of these choices of the heart stretches your ability to receive others. This is how we grow more hospitable — by welcoming one person when the opportunity is given to you. — Homan and Pratt in Radical Hospitality: Benedict’s Way of Love

i will be preaching on the biblical command to hospitality when i came across this little gem.
