God's Welcome

Hospitality for a Gospel-Hungry World



Gospel hospitality is more than being friendly or having coffee after worship. It's a way of life, a spiritual practice for both individuals and communities. It's full of surprises that change both host and guest or stranger because God's welcome feeds those who are hungry for forgiveness, rest, and peace; that is, for salvation. The author illuminates the spiritual practice of evangelism in the Good News by tracing God's welcome in ten Bible meditations and in drawing out eight implications for each congregation as a station for God's welcome feast. An appendix offers small group, worship, and fellowship activities that flow from this spirituality of evangelism.
