You Need To Get Out More: Four Practices for Hospitable Living

You Need To Get Out More

Once upon a time we knew our neighbors—their names, their stories, their hopes and dreams, their aches and awes. We shared meals with them. We shared our lives with them. We shared a deep commitment to the common good with them.


“Only when we can dare to live life after a God we can no longer believe in can we be freed to live life in pursuit of a God we were never told about—a God who persuades out of love rather than coerces out of power, who feels what we feel and responds accordingly, who is both unchanging yet ever-changing, and who is too busy offering new possibilities in the unfolding present to confine our futures to a predetermined plan.”
