Hospitality is Risky

I know, it takes courage to make that invitation. And yes, hospitality is risky! Sometimes you open yourselves up to sharing your life, and maybe the people you have invited are not that interested.

We’ve had that happen to us. We’ve also had meals with very narcissistic people who only want to talk about themselves. So … why even host when this happens?

Because there’s always something good that can come from sharing a meal, even if you just learn something about yourself.

But most times, courage leads to connection, I’d say 99% of the time that we host. Forget about the bad experiences.

When hosting is done, and our guests have left, then it’s time to think about what happens in our home after we host.

Courage to invite

For us, it means we have the courage to invite a group together (sometimes new people we’ve never met, or often bringing people together who have ever met each other), planning and getting the space ready. And then orchestrating the conversation (sometime you have to do this with introverts, but often not with extroverts).

Then the soul connection happens for most people around the table.

Ideas for hosting:

After you’ve made the dish and melted the cheese, remove from oven and serve immediately with sour cream, mango, avocado, cilantro, and your favorite chips!

This can also be an easy topping for a cabbage salad or on corn tortillas for ready-made tacos. Enjoy!
