Hospitality as Outreach

By Paul Wilkinson

Michael C. Mack challenges general understandings of hospitality as mere caregiver, instead arguing for a radical outreach paradigm in search of strangers to love through our caregiving.

So, not only will increased hospitality in your groups, generally understood, provide a place for visitors to stick due to warmness, invitation, and geniality, but teaching Mack’s model of biblically informed hospitality can empower and compel your group members to seek the lost and searching in their sphere of influence.

I strongly encourage you to read the entire article (it’s rather long) even if you need to read it across multiple days.
