MAKING ROOM: EXTENDING CHRISTIAN HOSPITALITY TO OUR NEIGHBOURS

The question “Who is my neighbour?” continues to challenge us today in a world where we have become suspicious of people who are different from us, whether in skin colour, language, socio-economic class or religion.

The Christian practice of hospitality has deep theological and historical roots, and has been a basis for sustainable ministry and outreach.

Join Dr Christine Pohl who first learned the practices of hospitality from her grandparents, which inspired her life-long research and writing on the subject.

Dr Pohl was Professor Emerita of Church in Society at Asbury Theological Seminary. She retired in 2018, having taught there for close to 30 years.

She is the author of Making Room: Recovering Hospitality as Christian Tradition (Eerdmans, 1999) and Living into Community: Cultivating Practices that Sustain Us (Eerdmans, 2012).

About the Organiser:
Biblical Graduate School of Theology (BGST) is a theological institution that seeks to help Christians and the church reflect theologically and holistically on what is going on in the world.

It offers a thorough and systematic study programme for lay people to help them live out their Christian faith in their vocations and be more effective in serving God, emphasising not only the development of biblical and theological knowledge, but also the acquisition of analytical, critical and integrative skills in interpreting Scriptures.
