|Paul was always seeking out people with whom he could share the message of God’s unconditional and everlasting love. When he found a group of women worshiping at the river, he struck up a conversation with them. They were so impressed that one of them, Lydia, convinced Paul and his friends to stay at her home; we can only imaging their lively conversations!
When have you had the opportunity to sit and talk with someone about your life of faith?
stir the waters by which we gather.
In the ways you receive us,
teach us how to receive others.
In the grace with which you create a home for us,
may we be bold to practice hospitality.
