A Workshop about Radical Hospitality
“We show hospitality to strangers not merely because they need it, but because we need it, too.”
St. Benedict’s Rule suggests that everyone who comes to our lives – the poor, the traveler, the curious, those of a different religion, social class or education – should be welcomed in, not just as an honoured guest, but as a window into the sacred presence. Our encounter with the stranger, the unknown, the unexpected, the foreign elements that spark our fear, are precisely the places where we are most likely to encounter God.
Join us for a full-day workshop as we explore what radical hospitality is and what it might look like in our daily lives, in the words we use, in our outreach, in our worship services, and in our physical building space.
