Entertaining Angels

Genesis 18:1-10a • Angels' visit to Abraham & Sarah
Luke 10:38–42 • Jesus visits Mary and Martha

If we truly and deeply respect every person whom we meet, offering hospitality and listening, we will find the angel -- or the Christ -- in each one. Hospitaltiy is welcoming another safely into the space of our lives. Listening is the way we let God speak to us through others.
