Hi everyone! Welcome to episode # 15 of the Art of Hosting Podcast. I’m your host Mary Amaechi and as always I’m so happy that you’re joining me for today’s show where I talk about the meaning of hospitality.
- Hospitality can have different meanings for different people. That’s why I have dedicated this episode to help us uncover the true meaning of hospitality according to the Bible. I bring this up because in the hospitality industry it’s easy to make serving and hosting others all about the money and prestige. And that can be toxic. That’s why I want us to set a foundation for what hospitality truly is and why pursuing it can help us care well for others.
- Today’s podcast guest is @amberdhammond and she’s joining us to answer this very question: What is hospitality?
- Amber Amber serves as the Office Manager for @9marks. She is a native Texan. She is married to her husband, Alex. Amber loves details and completing tasks behind the scenes to make things run smoothly. She and her husband are both members at Capitol Hill Baptist Church.
I reached out to Amber because she is living normal Christianity by practicing hospitality.
She’ll be addressing:
▶️ Hospitality as it’s described in the Bible
▶️ Why it is important to pursue hospitality
▶️ What hospitality looks like right now in her life
▶️ Challenges she’s faced when practicing hospitality
▶️ Logistically, how she prepares for hosting different groups of people
▶️ Areas that she wants to grow in as she practices hospitality
So, let’s dive into our conversation with Amber Hammond. Pardon the noise in the background. Enjoy!
