Entertaining God: Reconsidering the Central Role of Hospitality in the Christian Life in Regards to Ministering to Refugees

  • Amina Awad

Abstract

As a Church, especially among biblical scholars and missiologists, there has been a lack of focus on an orientation of hospitality to respond to the refugee crisis. In light of the providential hospitality of God found in the biblical narrative, I argue for a missional theology of hospitality indispensable to the Christian life, and demand a new response from the Church in regards to the refugee crisis. Despite human limitations, we cannot ignore this urgent call to hospitality, lest we miss an essential part of the Gospel message.
