Living Invitations Part 3 Ministry Chat

May 8, 2017

The hope of these ministry chats on Online Ministry Training is to help prepare everyone to get the most out of our time together during the message on the weekend. This week I am going to talk about the importance of hospitality. Dietrich Bonhoeffer said,

“The Church is the Church only when it exists for others…not dominating, but helping and serving. It must tell men of every calling what it means to live for Christ, to exist for others.”

Last week I said that the church is ultimately about relationships. Relationship with God, relationship with the people of God, and relationship with those who do not yet know Jesus. I want to spend the next few weeks talking about developing our relationships with the people who do not yet know Jesus. I am going to use the parable of the Good Samaritan to start this discussion.

Luke 10:25-37

So who is your neighbor? They are the people that we encounter in the course of our lives who need the mercy of God.
