You can read about the furor this missional act is stirring up up HERE.
I take it as a given that this kind of hospitality is not possible or even desirable for everyone. However, radical examples sometimes get our attention and cause us to think.
- Is this pastor just being naive and idealistic?
- What responsibilities does he have toward his other neighbors in a situation like this?
- What part should his church (which, according to the article, is in another town) and the local churches in this town play?
I'd love to hear your thoughts.
