Beyond Tea and Biscuits: Extending Hospitality

  • Course Dates: Fri 14 September, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Assuming we mean more than just putting the kettle on or having friends over for dinner, what exactly do we mean by “hospitality” and what role does it play in a faithful, ethical life?

This day session will look at the theology of hospitality and focus on biblical, historical, and contemporary examples of its practice. Through facilitated discussion and presentations, the day will be an opportunity to explore, interrogate, complicate, deconstruct, and re-define what we mean when we talk about welcoming the other.

This session will encourage practical application, especially to those involved in interfaith dialogue, immigration, community development, peace and reconciliation, and/or political approaches to theology and ethics.
