why invite someone to our table?
isn’t it too much trouble, time, work, mess and risk?
hospitality can be hard. i love to entertain, but sometimes i can get caught up in the details and it can be overwhelming. my personality (believe it or not) leans towards an introvert. thankfully, i am surrounded by dear women at my church who epitomize grace and hospitality. sue moore donaldson is one of them.
in her book, Come to My Table—God’s Hospitality and Yours , sue tackles this question with a spatula in one hand and a Bible in the other, sharing favorite recipes, like lori’s orange scones, and reminding us of Jesus who invited us to come to Him first.
here’s what sue says about her book:
Does God want the whole world in your living room? Probably not. But He does want you to invite. Who in your world has not seen your kitchen sink? It’s time. Trust Him for the courage to be His welcome.
sue wants to give one of her books away to a pleated poppy reader. to enter, in the comments answer this question from sue:
