Radical hospitality is grounded in the biblical term “philoxenia” that literally means “to love the stranger.” What is a spirit of radical hospitality? How could identifying hospitality as a spiritual practice make a difference in our lives, our communities, our world? What does it mean to open our hearts and minds to the radical witness of the Spirit of God welcoming the stranger both internally and externally? Join us for the conversation as we seek to move beyond a place of fear of “other” to a place grounded in the all- encompassing Love of God.
