Church & Mission

Creating a Welcoming Space

Our seminar explores King David’s example of hospitality, grace and inclusion in the story of Mephibosheth (2 Samuel 9) in conjunction with a wider consideration of hospitality in Western culture. We analyse the catalysts to David’s positive intervention in Mephibosheth’s situation and what was practically involved in the radical process of welcoming him. Then, we consider how these biblical principles might be effectively applied to local church contexts.

Presented by Gillian Carlisle, who draws on her expertise and experience as an educator, parent, researcher and church leader to provide challenging insights for church today.
