OUR HOME IS CALLED "THE PARSONAGE!!!"
I consider HOSPITALITY as an intrinsic component of my life long MINISTRY. Not just an option but a moral and spiritual IMPERATIVE!
As a spiritual practice, HOSPITALITY is found in many of the world’s religions and cultures encapsulated in their popular stories. For example, the Hebrew prophet Elijah would wander about disguised as a beggar to test how people would treat him, to determine if they would be hospitable or hostile. On one occasion, a rabbi turned him away from his home only to learn later that it was Elijah in disguise. The moral in Hebrew tradition is that you should treat all strangers with the utmost respect, honor and care as though you were greeting the prophet. Ancient Greece was known for practicing “xenia” or “guest-friendship,” the exercise of generosity towards guests deriving from the belief that gods visited humans and the humans’ fear that a stranger might be a god in disguise. Not treating strangers hospitably could have dire consequences for the would-be hosts. This same fear that a stranger might be a god in disguise is also found in Middle-Eastern culture. In the Bible story, Abraham and Sarah are visited by three men who tell Sarah that she is pregnant. She laughs loudly thinking she is too old to be pregnant. Her response angers Abraham who is fearful of offending the guests lest they be angels in disguise. Today, in Islam, being a gracious host is a primary requirement of being spiritually exemplary. In Buddhism, if you go to a zendo, a meditation hall, mats and cushions are commonly set out for unexpected guests in order to make them feel welcomed in a perhaps unfamiliar setting. The Buddhist tradition teaches that the very distinction between one group and another, between insider and outsider, between citizen and alien is a dangerous perception. Know that y'all will be treated in the tradition of HOSPITALITY as an expression of holiness!
