Faith Seeking Understanding Forum


March 17–18, 2017

Hospitality is making room where someone would otherwise not be welcome (Luke 14:12-14). This invitation of grace in space creates a context in which the Spirit works against the individualism and loneliness in our age of isolation and toward a community of grace (Revelation 19:9). Jesus Christ welcomes us, so we can welcome others (Matthew 25:35, Romans 15:7).

We will host speaker Christine Pohl, author of Making Room: Recovering Hospitality as a Christian Tradition. She will focus on three areas regarding hospitality:

  • biblical background
  • application to multiple ages and stages
  • the theme that Jesus brought us in so we can bring others in
