Five Resources on Radical Hospitality

This month we offer five resources on radical hospitality. Please share this digest with new members of your vestry and extend an invitation to subscribe to ECF Vital Practices to receive Vestry Papers, blogs, and the monthly digest.

ECF Fellow Sarah Barton discusses the varying degrees of welcome accorded adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities in her article Welcoming Adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities.

Jon Davis talks about Third Places, Thin Places, and a modern day understanding of the mission of the church in his article The Third Place.

In his blog Missional Mealtime, Alan Bentrup talks about how the playing field levels when we sit down to eat with each other and get to know each other at the table.

In Sharing the Bounty of God’s Garden, Bill Eakins describes God’s Garden, a project of St. John’s Episcopal Church in West Hartford, and how it reaches out in welcome to the neighboring community.

Since 2015, the Companions of Dorothy the Worker have cared for the most marginalized folks of the LGBTQ+ community in the San Francisco area. Diana Wheeler describes their radical hospitality in Vocation in an Unsafe World.
