Gordon West (KidZ at Heart President/CEO) and Adam Ormord (CDO) welcome Scottie May back for a challenging discussion on the spiritual practice of hospitality.
We can involve our children in the delight of sharing God’s welcome with others. The thing that will sustain and give life to children is a sense of how God actually feels about them — his open arms to embrace them, ready forever to forget all their sins as though they had never happened. Then as they share hospitality with others, they are reminded of God’s welcoming love toward them.
Scottie May is the Associate Professor Emerita of Christian Formation and Ministry at Wheaton College (Wheaton, Illinois). Scottie is the author of several books related to children and formational ministry including Listening to Children on the Spiritual Journey, Perspectives on Children's Spiritual Formation, and Children Matter.
Scottie May serves on the KidZ at Heart Board of Directors and is a favorite recurring guest on this podcast. Listen to episodes 5 and 18 for more discussions with Scottie.
