Grace & Hospitality

Every act of genuine love is an expression of grace. It is a gift. In loving without the desire to possess we find ourselves receiving more than we give. This experience comes to us most frequently in the practice of hospitality. In welcoming the stranger, we find ourselves being welcomed. We find a part of ourselves that had been lost.
