Practicing Hospitality Book Study Begins!

Pick up your copy of Practicing Hospitality: The Joy of Serving Others by Pat Ennis & Lisa Talock and let’s get started! Our book study begins this week by reading chapter one and preparing for discussion next Monday, February 9 on this first chapter. You have plenty of time to prayerfully read the chapter and come back and join in on our discussion!

Here is a sweet quote from Chapter 1 to wet your taste buds:

“Hospitality is a wonderful gift. We don’t need a grand palace, or a dream home – few of us have those. To make others feel truly welcome, we only need an open heart and the greater beauty of love expressed.”

Here are a few of the questions to get you thinking as you read chapter 1:

1. What character qualities do you believe are the most important to cultivate in preparing to practice hospitality?

2. Which of these are you lacking and how can you begin cultivating them more purposefully?

3. After reading, start thinking about beginning a hospitality notebook that will challenge you to integrate hospitality and character into your current lifestyle. Come back and share what important features you will include and what creative ideas might you share with others?

So come back next Monday and join us for chapter 1 discussion…
