New Devotion Series: I see you!
We started a series all about being aware of the people around us. It is titled: "I see you"

God creates, knows, loves, and sees all of us in our full humanity. But as people, we can fall into the habit of assuming everyone is the same or everyone is like us. While we share a common humanity, these assumptions can be harmful and prevent us from truly seeing other people and listening to their perspectives. By looking at Biblical stories, this series will help us learn how to listen to, respect, affirm, and act for and with others. In doing so, we can also come to know God even more fully.

This week we take a look at how hospitality has always been part of the covenant relationship that God has had with people, and how it forms part of our Christian mandate. All people want to be loved and cared for, everyone needs to belong - and into this Jesus sent his disciples (and His Church) to Love people. Read along in Matthew 25:34-40, Galatians 5:14 and Deuteronomy 10:17-22 as we explore the importance of respecting the strangers around us.

Ps. strangers are simply people who have not yet become friends/family.

We are now three weeks into our devotional series titled 'I see you!' The first episode focused on how Jesus listened and responded to the voice of people he met along the journey to Jerusalem. Then we took a look at how Jesus opposed and challenged and even changed cultural practice to ensure people are not kept from God. This week we spend time to remember how important hospitality was in Jesus' ministry and how important it has been throughout all of creation. We are preparing to embrace our community in new ways - find moments that can become defining and treat the people we meet with godly hospitality.

Read along in Matthew 25:34-40, Galatians 5:14 and Deuteronomy 10:17-22 as we explore the importance of respecting the strangers around us.

Ps. strangers are simply people who have not yet become friends/family.

Thoughts for Week 3

Over time, how welcoming has our church been to the stranger? If our neighbourhood’s demographic has changed, does our congregation reflect that change in its make-up? If not, why? How can this passage inspire our church to become more welcoming to the stranger?
