Hospitality. Welcome. Community.

As I was reading this evening, I was struck by the following quote:

We are more concerned with improving our homes than sharing them.

I took to Twitter to share the quote (noting my own sense both of conviction and inspiration at the idea expressed), and a friend suggested I read the short poem ‘The God Letters’ by Steve Turner.

It’s amazing(!):

The Lord God says:
‘Share your bread
with the hungry,
bring the homeless poor
into your house,
cover the naked.’

Dear Lord God,
We have got
new carpets,
so this will
not be possible.

Selah.
