Register now for this 12 week study on biblical hospitality where we break open Scripture using the Benedictine pillar of “Hospitality”. This hospitality has little to do with our cultural definitions that equate hospitality with entertaining. The biblical perspective is grounded in understanding God as initiator- as host- the one who forever calls, welcomes, challenges and abides with us. We are the responders to God’s initiative. We look to Chapter 53 of Saint Benedict’s Rule: “All guest who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ, for he himself will say: I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” Biblical Hospitality is not optional; but a radical imperative. Includes weekly lecture via notes or video clips, assignments, prayers and weekly blog discussions.
Now join us for this journey no matter where you are in the world. Benefit from online discussion with people from all different walks of life. Delve deeply into scripture in this formative process that joins the Rule and Scripture in a fresh way. Support both your academic and spiritual journeys. Certificates of Completion or Participation available.
