    Summer Book Club - Hospitality

    WHAT DID GOD USE TO DRAW a radical, committed unbeliever to himself? Did God take her to an evangelistic rally? Or, since she had her doctorate in literature, did he use something in print? No, God used an invitation to dinner in a modest home, from a humble couple who lived out the gospel daily, simply, and authentically.

    With this story of her conversion as a backdrop, Rosaria Butterfield invites us into her home to show us how God can use this same “radical, ordinary hospitality” to bring the gospel to our lost friends and neighbors.

    Such hospitality sees our homes as not our own, but as God’s tools for the furtherance of kindness as we welcome those who look, think, believe, and act differently from us into our everyday, sometimes messy lives – helping them see what true Christian faith really looks like.

    Our ministry staff is going to be reading this book this summer and we would like to invite you to read it with us.

    Join us for a picnic and a discussion of the book on Wednesday, August 1 at 6:30 pm.

    You can purchase the book here, or the title is available as a downloadable e-book from the public library.

    Sign up here for the picnic and book discussion.
