‘Practicing Hospitality’ not about fancy tea parties

By: 28 May 2011 One Comment

When most of us think of “hospitality,” we think of hosting frequent gatherings in our home…which of course is always spotless.

A seminar coming June 11 will dispel the idea that hospitality always has to involve large groups, tea and picture perfect homes. “Practicing Hospitality: Creating Welcoming Spaces for God, for Others and for Yourself” will be 9:30 a.m. Saturday, June 11, at the Global Outreach Center Immanuel Baptist Church in Rogers. The event is by Strings Attached Ministries.

“Hospitality is not dead.  It’s been stifled, shoved into corners, reserved for holidays and special occasions,” says Cari Kaufman of Strings Attached Ministries. “A victim of the Spirit of the Age: busyness. In this one-day women’s event, we’ll rediscover friendship forged in the front room over tea.  Let’s learn how to create room for everyday hospitality. Together, we will explore how to make hospitality a way of life.  We will learn to create welcoming spaces for God to enter in, for others to find sanctuary and for you to find peace.”

Each seminar participant will receive a workbook, the possibility of a door prize and a catered lunch as part of her experience. The event should be finished by about 3:30 p.m.

After the June 11 event, there will be one more seminar in the “Practicing Your Paths” series. On August 13, Strings Attached Ministries will be hosting “Practicing Prayer and Action: Living a Life of Intercession.”
