Tonight I’m putting the final touches on my presentation on Radical Hospitality. Funny thing is, I never offered to do this seminar – I was going to talk about Hospitality as Salvation in the context of inner city church work, but this thing has taken on a life of its own.
the People (a website of video resources I highly recommend). In this clip he talks about the story from Luke 7 where Jesus is invited to a party at Simon’s house. He’s a bit of celebrity but as the story moves along, we find out that the host is actually trying to impress everyone else. Jesus isn’t welcomed properly and is actually insulted. Then a beautiful thing happens when a working girl (prostitute) drops behind him, at his feet, pours expensive perfume on his feet and then washes his feet with her tears and hair.
