“Be sure to welcome strangers into your home. By doing this, some people have welcomed angels as guests, without even knowing it.”
— Hebrews 13:2
There’s a difference between being friendly and being hospitable. Churches may consider themselves a “friendly church” but often that means they’re nice to one another. Hospitality is extended to people we don’t know. Hospitality is the deep, meaningful engagement to people we meet for the first time.
