When Hospitality Hurts by Amy Boucher Pye

When Hospitality Hurts by Amy Boucher Pye

Sometimes, hospitality hurts. We extend ourselves and welcome people into our homes, anticipating times of engaging conversation and laughter. But afterwards, we find ourselves drained in body, mind, and spirit. We become tempted to pull up the drawbridge and keep our castle to ourselves for a time. Our family has just come through a time(…)

Is Your Faith Riddled with Doubt

Is Your Faith Riddled with Doubt

This morning I am looking out my window on our first cloudy day for quite a while. Like most people, I love sunshine and relish the long cloudless days that are often part of summer even here in the Pacific Northwest. But even more than that, I love the sunshine that radiates through the clouds, and(…)

Embracing the Wild Hospitality of God

Embracing the Wild Hospitality of God

A couple of weeks ago, I spoke at a seminary class about spirituality and gardening. It was a fun class, but one question asked by a student keeps intruding in my mind. Didn’t God curse the creation after the fall? he asked, implying that it no longer reflected the glory of God and that we no longer needed to respect(…)

Snails, Crickets or Tarantulas Anyone?

Snails, Crickets or Tarantulas Anyone?
