SYNOPSIS: Do you practice Radical Hospitality? Are you welcoming to all? Are you intentional to include all? I invite you to be with us this Sunday as we explore the idea of Radical Hospitality.
FEATURED MUSICIAN: Mark Wilson
I have a new friend. Her name is Juli Stratton. I am learning a lot from her. She is teaching me about a concept called radical hospitality. What is it? The roots of radical hospitality can be found from St. Benedict. It connects with the monastic teachings of the welcoming Jesus. Monasteries were sanctuaries for all people, but especially those disenfranchised. Who were the disenfranchised? Who are they in our community today?
I invite you to be with us this Sunday as we explore the idea of Radical Hospitality. Do we practice this? Are we welcoming to all? Are we intentional to include all? Radical Hospitality is intentional. It is based on service and non-judgment.
Juli Stratton will be with us. She’ll share her understanding and experience of Radical Hospitality. Juli is the founder of The North Idaho Pride Alliance. The North Idaho Pride Alliance is an organization of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning and Allied (LGBTQA+) people who are our brothers, sisters and children in our ministry and community. USCNI is partnering with the North Idaho Pride Alliance at our Coeur d’Jazz Benefit Concert on February 3 at 7 p.m. at the Lake City Center (see article below).
Our musicians are featured guest singer/songwriter and guitarist Mark Wilson, along with drummer Nick Halpin, bass player Gary Edwards, guitarist Gary Buettner, accompanist Gwen Gathercoal along with singers Heather Ross and Mark Soss.
This is a service you will want to experience as it will offer a vision of what USCNI is becoming. We already do a good job of welcoming and inclusivity AND we can become even better. Come be part of it. See you Sunday.
With a welcoming heart,
