Everyone knows what hospitality is--or at least what it should look like when we invite guests into our homes. Make coffee, offer water and a place to sit, help people feel welcome and comfortable.
Not everyone knows that Hospitality is a virtue! Each and every church body ought to do its best to nurture hospitality among its members. 1 Peter admonishes us to
"Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God's grace in its various forms."
--I Peter 4: 9-10
