We have been privileged to provide hospitality to a Franciscan brother this week. My husband (who is more than Mr. Mom) was delighted to have company for a few days. It made me recall what our Mennonite friends taught us years ago--people "Mennonite" their way across the country. Franciscans do the same.
How wonderful to exercise this gift of Christian hospitality. Our lives are enriched--and the brother given a place of rest and comfort to continue his journey. We shall look for him again . . . and others.
Deep conversation with my man--set the notion in place that we might one day soon Franciscan our way in England! I am already planning. :)
Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13:2
