Hospitality – God’s love made visible

 

Some questions…

  • Was there something in today’s address that surprised, encouraged, unsettled, or intrigued you?
  • Do you ever wonder why you ‘bump’ into people in your daily life? Have you ever experienced these chance encounters as a time when God may be speaking to you?
  • How do you practice hospitality – reaching out to listen to others?
  • Talk with someone else in our congregation about how we might grow our practice of hospitality together

 Notices:

A very warm welcome to all who worship with us this morning. Please stay for morning tea after the service.
