Christian Hospitality Opens Doors

Q Commons Director Duncan McFadzean shared this story and we wanted to pass it along:

I recently finished Rosaria Butterfield's book "The Gospel Comes with a House Key: Practicing Radically Ordinary Hospitality in Our Post-Christian World" - it was a deeply challenging read - at one point I was muttering to myself "but that's fine, you're clearly an extrovert and you find all this open door stuff easy" and then in the next paragraph I read:


"We introverts miss out on great blessings when we excuse ourselves from practicing hospitality because it exhausts us. I often find people exhausting. But over the years I have learned how to pace myself, how to prepare for the private time necessary to recharge, and how to grow in discomfort. Knowing your personality and your sensitivities does not excuse you from ministry. It means that you need to prepare for it differently than others might."

That section alone convicted me! So....as we run into the weekend and you're preparing for Q Commons and The Power of We, here's some reflections from Rosaria on what hospitable Christianity looked like in her life. I hope this is encouraging and inspires you.


How Radically Ordinary Hospitality Changed Rosaria Butterfield's Life


Our Q Commons Panel will be discussing the ways in which hospitality, initiative and loving our neighbor opens doors that we never could have expected.

We Still Have Two Tables You Can Sponsor!

Every local venue for Q Commons has to find their way of funding the event. In Sacramento, that means sponsorship. Two-thirds of the registration fee goes to support the national work of Q and it is impossible to run an event that costs less than a ticket to a movie. We are looking for a few more sponsors to fully fund our event. Will you? To sponsor, contact Merisa Moy at merisa@actsonline.net
