About this product
- DescriptionBecome a person who is ready to respond to others. This book of monastic wisdom, practices, and reflection should inspire you to find new ways to respond to the world around you. There is thing more central to the publishing mission of Paraclete Press than Christian hospitality, and we have pulled together what we've learned over the last 25 years. Chapters include: * Welcoming the stranger * Giving yourself away * The realness of caring for people * Food and table * Through the seasons of the church year * Opening your heart The result is an inspirational guide for practical living. From the book: Is there anything more beautiful than the meeting of friends, the sharing of burdens, genuine caring love for ather human being? Perhaps there is. Perhaps even more beautiful, in the Christian worldview, is when these things happen between those who are t friends, maybe they are strangers, or perhaps they are simply extending beyond their comfort zones to be friends, to listen or help in times of trouble, to show love. For a follower of Jesus, this is the most beautiful way of life of all.
