A Collect for Hospitality

Welcoming Father, who watches for our return home, teach us what true hospitality is, that we would show love to those who are disconnected, welcome to those who need a home, space to those in need of rest, and provision to those who are lacking, so that we would be like our Father in heaven, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who had no home on earth, but is ever at home with you and the Holy Spirit. Amen. ‘ Whoever welcomes you welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.’ – Matthew 10:40
