May 2023 devotional: Love in action: The art of intergenerational hospitality
by Sarah Carson
In writing to the Romans, Paul advised this early Christian community: “For as in one body we have many members, and not all the members have the same function, so we, who are many, are one body in Christ, and individually we are members one of another.” Yet when it comes to sharing hospitality in the church, some gifts can seem more naturally useful than others. In this one-session devotional, Sarah Carson, Gather‘s former managing editor and a self-described hospitality-challenged member of the body of Christ, explores what creativity can teach us about about hospitality. While studying passages from Romans, 1 Kings, Matthew and Luke, participants will see how we all have the capacity to help others feel welcome and to accept this welcome for ourselves.
