Last Day of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity 2010 - Monday

These resources can be found at the Churches Together website.

YOU
1. What hinders your own hospitality?
2. Is the place where you live hospitable to
strangers?
3. What difference does the church make?
4. Whose hospitality has touched you deeply?

THE WORD
Gen 18:1-8; Psalm 146; Romans 14:17-19;
Luke 24:41-48 – Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures

FOCUS: Have you anything here to eat?
(Luke 24:41)

REFLECTION
Fasting is fine,
focusing minds;
feasting is great,
sharing the meat.
Fasting is personal,
quite self-referral;
feasting is communal
where spirits meet.
Loving in giving,
donating approval,
needs of the body
attended with grace.
Each one important,
the first and the least,
all must be welcome
and all have a place.

THE WORLD
God of the open hand,
in whom all find a welcome:
help us to
feed the hungry,
give refreshment to the thirsty,
provide covering for the naked,
care for the sick,
extend a hand of friendship to the
isolated,
as fellow pilgrims of Love’s embrace.
