Missional Field Notes

Quotes, Examples, and Ideas from My Missional Frontier

Jordan Tarwater introduces readers to Letty M. Russell’s notion of Just Hospitality. It’s hospitality, but with a justice slant:

In her final book, Just Hospitality: God’s Welcome in a World of Difference, she writes that hospitality is “the practice of God’s welcome, embodied in our actions as we reach across difference to participate with God in bringing justice and healing to our world in crisis.” Just hospitality calls us to actively orient our life as a church toward unexpected divine presence, advocacy for the marginalized, mutual welcome across real difference, and the forming of deep community.

This is a powerful point to me as I recognize all the ways I AVOID advocating for the marginalized in our own communities
