We may think of hospitality as merely being polite to guests, but the ancients understood the profound potential hospitality holds for building and transforming lasting relationshipsfor binding families together, making strangers into friends, even turning enemies into neighbors. Hospitality as an intentional spiritual practice has the radical ability to change hearts, transform communities, and mediate divine graciousness in the world and in our own lives. With wit and verve, Sawyer guides readers through the process of claiming hospitality as a multidimensional approach to life that can inform all of your relationships. Practicing hospitality can: Allow you to accept yourself for who you areand accept Gods acceptance of you Strengthen your family life through understanding and compassion Improve your communities by honoring differences of opinion Overcome dividing lines by offering compassion to strangers and enemies Available to anyone of any faith, hospitality is a powerful tool for creating a more sacred world, one kindness at a time.
