How is hospitality an eternal investment? Kathy Stair joins Karen Hodge to encourage us not to be intimidated with the expectation of hospitality because it has nothing to do with giftedness. Kathy challenges us to think biblically about hospitality and casts a vision for how God can use our obedience to invite people into our homes as a way to grow His Church.
