Message: “The Hospitality of Initiation” from Jeff Lawrence

The Hospitality of Initiation

Relationships start with a simple reality: someone has to go first. Whether it is a walk across the room, a message to get together, or asking for a person’s name, someone must initiate. This week, we watch Jesus as he initiates a new connection with Zacchaeus, a man who most considered an unlikely candidate for friendship with Jesus.

Does this sound like you? You long for a meaningful life and deep relationships with others. You feel a little guilty about not having more time for others, but life feels too busy chasing the next thing—next text, next meeting, next sporting event, next career move. Maybe it’s time to reclaim an ancient idea. 2000 years ago, an invitation was given: “Love your neighbor.” The old word for this is hospitality. When you study the way Jesus lived, it’s amazing how many significant moments occurred as he encountered men and women in the everyday stuff of life. Join us for this series about the simplest way to change the world. It worked then. It will work now.
