Our guest is Leslie Verner, author of Invited: The Power of Hospitality in an Age of Loneliness. Leslie redefines hospitality and in doing so gets at the heart of it: To show kindness. Leslie shares about teaching English in China and how her Chinese students loved to come to her apartment to cook for her. And how her willingness to let them serve her created bridges of love. Leslie also shares how God has taught her that hospitality is loving those we cross paths with each day. Like the struggling single mom at her son’s preschool. Perry gives Shawna “The Planner” a hard time about forgetting a single event that was on both their calendars. Lisa gets at the heart of hospitality: Be welcoming to strangers, friends and family, anywhere, anyplace, anytime. Perry shares how letting himself be interrupted by a college classmate he hasn’t seen since 1986 became life giving hospitality for him just this week. And Shawna shares about her daughter Eden’s dorm room hospitality.
