Best Christian Hospitality Links In The News And The Blogosphere

WLO_openhomeOur culture seems to be at war with Christian hospitality, and at times our churches practice a watered-down version of it. But in spite of this, I’ve found some Internet “hospitality gems” that I wanted to share with you. Each of the articles below has wonderful ideas on how we can practically “do the word” of hospitality that Christ first did to us. These below links are not blanket endorsements of the authors or the sites, but just simply an acknowledgement that we can learn something from what was written.

    Hi Tim — began clicking on the links and read “Baptists growing in Christ because of Hospitality” and it mentioned an upcoming seminar in Sophia, NC called “Hospitality – a spiritual practice.” Unfortunately one of the practices mentioned is “centering prayer” which is New Age. You may want to research it. I believe we do need to get out of our comfort zones in many areas, including hospitality but centering prayer is not something that should be promoted or practiced; unfortunately much apostasy is coming into the evangelical churches.

      Hi Elene – I too have some concerns about many things that I see in evangelical churches – thanks for pointing this particular one out. That’s one of the reasons I made sure to point out that I don’t endorse the authors or their sites, but simply that there were a few good points made about Christian hospitality. Thanks for reading and commenting – God Bless!
