Welcome to the Simply Convivial Audio blog, where we practice managing our lives with fruitful, faithful resilience, overcoming distraction and discouragement, so we can glorify God in our work and our attitudes.
The word hospitality, as it comes to us in English through Old French and Latin *hospes*, means being a host – a loaded concept in ancient times. Hosts have certain duties, and in learning about hospitality we learn about what we ought to do and be as homemakers. For to extend hospitality, there must first be a home. For there to be welcome into a family, there must first be a welcomed and welcoming family.
Let’s dig in.
Manners are love in trifles, love in the small things. What small ways can we make our love seen and felt throughout mundane days? Hospitality gives us clues.
