This week in chapel, Roy Yanke taught on hospitality as a micro-justice, and one of the most overlooked forms of justice. Key scriptures Roy used include Romans 12:12-14, 3 John 1, Matthew 25 and Galatians 6:10. As followers of Jesus we are called to extend hospitality filled with kindness and love for strangers. Roy emphasized that we are called to invite and to listen; our invitations should welcome in the stranger not only to do things for them, but most importantly to be with them. Then, we must demonstrate the highest form of respect by listening to the stranger with our full attention to honor them as an individual.
