Hospitality emerges from a grateful heart; it is a response of love and gratitude for God’s love and welcome to us. ~ Christine Pohl
Autumn is so beautiful, a spectacular transitional time of harvesting and taking stock. And, of course, a time for giving thanks. We know that our many gifts and blessings were not solely given for our own benefit, but to be shared with others in the great adventure of life.
Hospitality is key among our core values and we define it as the ability to “welcome others with generosity and openness”. It’s a means of sharing: sharing our material blessings, certainly, but, most importantly, sharing our very selves. It applies to welcoming our clients in the work we do, but also how we welcome one another – to the areas of the Good Shepherd in which we work: our offices, the kitchen, dorms and clinic, and Barrett House and St. Joseph’s Residence – including our many volunteers and visitors.
Each day we offer our hospitality and our presence, we create a sanctuary of thanksgiving that is year-long, not just at this time of year. In this beautiful way, we respond to God’s call to share our gifts, knowing that He is most present when we are vulnerable.
As you gather with family and friends, we extend our community’s wishes to you and yours for a blessed Thanksgiving.
