Verse to Pray for Our Home
“No stranger had to spend the night on the street, for I opened my door to the traveler.”
God, when we clothe the naked, feed the hungry and open our doors to weary travelers & strangers, we are clothing, feeding and housing YOU. May this be imprinted on our hearts and may our doors be open.

I would LOVE to hear from you in the comments! How are you liking the book? What struck you the most??
“Benedict tells us to offer an open heart, a stance of availability, and to look for God lurking in every single person who comes through the door.” Radical Hospitality, p. 18
Is your heart open to strangers? Is your heart open to those that are different from you? Are you willing to have coffee with someone radically different from you? Are you willing to listen without judging? Are you willing to be available to those that God brings your way?
Oh how God is stretching me in this!! What about you?
Who has God allowed your path to cross…and can you see God in him?
Jessica Ann says
I”m a stay at home mom. I don’t go many places or meet many people. It’s hard to be open to people when you don’t meet people. But I”ve been trying to keep a smile on my face and a kind word for those I do interact with. The cashier at the grocery store, the librarian or the stranger I see at the park.
