What is Hospitality, Really?

I recently wrote an article called “Lives that Welcome: How a Non-Western Understanding of Hospitality Can Revitalize the American Church’s Fellowship and Outreach” for the Evangelical Missiological Society’s national conference, held on Zoom. I recorded my presentation and uploaded it on YouTube, if you’d like to watch it!

Here’s a snapshot of what it’s about: What if hospitality is more natural and more beautiful than we’ve ever imagined? Learn from biblically congruent Non-Western perspectives what it means to live a life that welcomes, and consider how living in this way could revitalize the American Church’s fellowship and outreach.

Watch Part 1 here.

Watch Part 2 here.

If you’d like to read the paper itself, here it is!
