A person of peace offers you hospitality. What does that look like in today’s society? You may not get invited into a home (although in my experience, that is not uncommon). Let’s say you have just started a new job, and after you’ve been there a few days, the lady in the office who everyone seems to revolve around says to you, “Some of us from the office go out for drinks on Fridays after work. Â Would you like to join us?” Â What has she done? She has offered you hospitality. Â She’s opening up her circle of friends to you.
Lately, our church has been talking about missional discipleship – although we don’t necessarily call it that. What is “missional discipleship”? It is going outside the walls and boundaries of the “church” not only to evangelism but even more to make disciples. It means meeting people where they are in their own environment and help them grow in maturity in Christ and then help them disciple their friends and neighbors and co-workers, etc.
Thus, the idea of finding a “person of peace” becomes very important. What do you think of Felicity’s description?
