Welcome back after a couple of weeks off for Christmas and New Years travel! Did you all put your hospitality to the test in this season? If so, we want to know all about it! Add your story in the comments section!
In this episode we're doing a few things new.
First, we've invited a guest to be on the podcast (isn't that hospitable of us?). His name is Daniel and he's a new member at MPBC.
Next, we've moved into the realm of Disney Theme Songs with our musical selection. To all of you who followed simply for the classic rock and grunge, I'm sorry. To all those parents out there who have forgotten what decent music sounds like... this one is for you! Really, though, I can't believe we hadn't thought about this song for our musical introduction yet! Thanks Daniel for helping out with that one!
And finally, we're in a new section of the book called "Recovering the Practice." So we're moving from history and information to practical stuff. How do we begin to do this thing called hospitality? Where are the limits and tensions? In this episode, focusing on Chapter 7, we talk about tensions between scarcity and abundance, holy possibility and human limitation, arrogance and humility. It's clearly a jam-packed conversation.
As you listen and reflect on your own work with this chapter, consider what your own limits and boundaries might currently be. How is God calling you to stretch those places and lean into something a little more vulnerable... a little more risky... and a little more welcoming?
