Core Community: The Power of Hospitality

September 4, 2018

In this sermon, pastor Luke looked at Romans 12:9-21, especially the Apostle Paul's invitation for us to "always be prepared to show hospitality." As a church that values the relationship between the gospel, community, and mission, the role of showing kindness to others is a powerful means of making a difference in people's lives. After all, as Luke points out, much of the Roman Empire was evangelized for Christ due to hospitality! 

Check out the book that Luke mentioned, Total ChurchIt's a really helpful and practical read!
