“I was a stranger and you took me in!” — Jesus, Gospel of Matthew chapter 25.
What would happen if we greeted strangers in our church buildings and in other areas of our daily lives with a commitment to display and share the grace of Jesus and tear down the distance caused by our not knowing one another and our basic human suspicion of others who are different from us?
I’m not sure, but this little photography project reminds us of the possibilities — and this is just a bare minimum start!
As we are reminded, some in their kindness to strangers have entertained heaven’s angels without even being aware of it at the time!
Keep on loving each other as brothers and sisters. Don’t forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it! (Hebrews 13:1-2 NLT).
