Practicing Hospitality

How do we overcome our fear and hesitation in order to welcome and shelter a stranger? The Christian practice of hospitality is the practice of providing a space of welcome not just to strangers but to friends and family, to claim the joy of homecoming. Hospitality means welcoming strangers to your neighborhood and to your faith community, to share their gifts within your home and community. Practicing Our Faith, developed by the Valparaiso Project on the Education and Formation of People in Faith, is a project of Lilly Endowment based at Valparaiso University. The Valparaiso Project launched PracticingOurFaith.org as a way to extend the invitation offered in the book, Practicing Our Faith: A Way of Life for a Searching People (1997; second edition, 2010).  Both book and website explore 12 time-honored practices shaped by the Christian community over the centuries and still richly relevant to contemporary experience. These Christian practices are shared activities that address fundamental human needs and that, when woven together, form a way of life that is faithful and has integrity. Read more, including ways to practice hospitality and ideas for sermons and groups at Practicing Our Faith: Hospitality.
