Together at God's table: Mission Sunday 2021


“Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers,” says the book of Hebrews, “for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it” (13:2 NRSV). Through hospitality, which creates an opportunity for strangers to becomefriends, we experience the presence of God. Similarly, mission — the sharing of the good news of Jesus Christ across cultures — cannot be separated from hospitality. People who are sent from one place to another, being guests, rely on the wisdom and welcome of their hosts in order to survive. And hosts, showing kindness to strangers, receive from them the blessings that they bring. As Jesus said, “Whoever welcomes a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward; and whoever welcomes a righteous person in the name of a righteous person will receive the reward of the righteous” (Matthew 10:41 NRSV).

Together, in the giving and receiving of hospitality, guests and hosts find themselves in "the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit" (2 Corinthians 13:13 NRSV).
