“What would happen in your church if new visitors received multiple invitations for a meal after the service?
When my husband and I were first married, I remember one specific comment from our pastor’s sermon, “Just put on a pot of soup before church and then invite someone over you’ve never met before.” The idea had never crossed my mind. In many ways, hospitality seemed most comfortable inviting friends over to well-planned meals. But inviting strangers over?
Over our years in ministry, taking this pastor’s advice has proven to be one of my favourite things about Sundays.”
