In today’s interview, missiologist Mekdes Haddis talks about her experience of loneliness and hospitality in the United States and her ideas regarding what American believers can do to cultivate a relational (rather than a transactional) kind of hospitality in their lives, believing the promise that by showing hospitality, “some have entertained angels unaware” (Hebrews 13:2).
