Just Hospitality: God's Welcome in a World of Difference

Book encourages a "mending ministry" for those afflicted by poverty, injustice and suffering

The late Letty Russell was a feminist theologian who taught at Yale Divinity School, New Haven, Conn.

captIn Just Hospitality: God's Welcome in a World of Difference she defines hospitality as “the practice of God’s welcome, embodied in our actions as we reach across difference to participate with God in bringing justice and healing to our world in crisis.”

She calls the Christian community to a mending ministry and to include those “missing persons” who have been afflicted by poverty, injustice and suffering. Christians who take the gospel seriously see that these differences are gifts in themselves that signify God’s love of diversity (Westminster John Knox Press, 2009).
