Hospitality comes from the Greek word hospice. It means to be welcomed as a guest into the life of another. In the best of moments this is who we have been as a nation. Saw a wonderful sign in a gift shop out in the country that read, “If you have more than enough, don’t build walls, build a bigger table.” Invite each other to the table. Get to know them. Hear their stories. What do we see happening when people gather around tables? Strangers are welcomed. Community is born and the high aspirations of America are reignited. Let us all build larger tables and take down the walls.
