Dr. Christine Pohl 06-16Paul writes in Romans to “welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you.”  Hospitality is a practice that builds community and also expands it. Appreciating the importance of hospitality requires that we also take seriously the challenges that arise in welcoming people. We simultaneously seek to offer hospitality and to maintain a valued identity, cultivate community, and deal with limited resources.
