Wonderful sermon today from our Lead Pastor, Dr. Daniel, West Des Moines United Methodist Church. He is so full of love, faith and grace! He talked about God's Open Door of Hospitality, part 2 of a 7-sermon series. Key points: it's a spiritual discipline; it's an atmosphere -- a "welcome and acceptance" where people can experience God's love and care; it's an attitude of the heart - gratitude; it's an action. Hospitality is a key characteristic of a true community of faith. What attitudes need to change that I/we, as the church, may embrace some one else?
