Offering Hospitality.

 

When we offer hospitality to strangers, we welcome them into a place to which we are somehow connected – a space that has meaning and value to us.  This is often our home, but it also includes church, community, nation, and various other institutions.  In hospitality, the stranger is welcomed into a safe, personal, and comfortable place, a place of respect and acceptance and friendship.

From the introduction to Making Room by Christine Pohl, p 13.
