9 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. 10 Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor… 13 Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. – Romans 12:9-10, 13
Jesus modeled it. Paul wrote about it. But are we doing a good job of it in our churches and personal life? What lessons can we learn from the absolute master of hospitality – Disneyland! Join us as we find out what it means from Disney to offer hospitality and how we can apply those lessons into our own context. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
Next February, we are headed to Disneyland for our seventh Faith and Family Trip! I am excited to share this adventure with all of you and hope this is a great chance for us all to get to know each other better and inspire us to do more as people of faith. Here are the details:
Our plans are to meet up early on Sunday to take advantage of being there at opening, have some devotional time together, and head into the park. We’ll go on some rides in the morning, have a mid-morning snack and lunch together, and take a tour emphasizing our theme of hospitality by a former cast member – me! And then we’ll have a cool scavenger hunt for prizes as well as other fun stuff! And more rides. After that it’s free time! We will have an optional dinner the night before for those arriving early and you can join me for dinner at the park if you’d like as well or just go off and have fun.
And it will be FUN! Hopefully you’ll also walk away with a different perspective on church. Our goal is to integrate best practices from the outside world and apply them to how we can be more effective for Christ. This trip will be focused on hospitality and how we can use our own radical hospitality to reshape how others see us and grow our church together. More details will be forthcoming so bookmark this page and subscribe for continued information! We hope to see you there.
