A Collect to Show Hospitality to All
Loving God, who welcomes all who desire to come close, give us hospitable hearts like yours, that we would not cut ourselves off from those who are different or who struggle or are unacceptable, but would show love to all who will receive just as you show love to us who are yet sinners in need of you, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who loved us to the end and sat down at your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
'Now all the tax collectors and sinners were coming near to listen to him. And the Pharisees and the scribes were grumbling and saying, "This fellow welcomes sinners and eats with them."' - Luke 15:1-2
