God calls us to be disciples of Jesus, reaching out in service and fellowship
to share the love of Christ.
Stranger Bearing Many Gifts
We are all sojourners. We are all wanderers on earth. We are all strangers to each other. We are the Christian pilgrims to our eternal home. I now welcome you strangers all in the name of Jesus Christ and I hope you welcome me and my family, strangers In Christ. The host offers up a piece of bread and water. The guest comes bearing gifts too. The strangers are messengers from God and agents of God’s work. Jesus said that I was a stranger, and you did welcome me. (Mt. 25: 35) Christian task is so simple: to turn the stranger who is perceived as an enemy, a hostis, into a hospes, which is for "guest." (Hostility-enemy/ Hospitality-guest) We were all strangers. Now we are becoming a family. Right here, right now. Let us go to eat together and celebrate the communion, the meal of the Lord. - Pastor Seok Hwan
