I concluded our “Pave the Way” series at Eastbrook Church this weekend with the message, “We’ll Leave the Light On: Becoming a Radically Welcoming Church.” The main point of the message was that because of the love of God, the church as God’s community must be radically welcoming. There were a variety of texts that I turned to for this message, which you can see in the message outline below.
The outline for the message is included below:
“Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it.” (Hebrews 13:2)
Jesus and Hospitality (Matthew 25:35)
Hospitality and Love (Romans 12:9-13)
Hospitality and Community (Hebrews 12:1-3)
