Building Community as Host and as Guest with George Wieland
July 31, 2019 7:30 pm
How can Hospitality help guide churches and our city at large as we respond to the March terror attacks on two mosques here in Christchurch?
"Hospitality in the Face of Terror" is a series of Wednesday night conversations on this question, co-hosted by Te Raranga and Oxford Terrace Baptist Church. We'll hear stories, reflections and insights from a range of guest speakers either responding on the ground or thinking and writing from afar.
Our first discussion is titled “Building community as host and as guest" with Dr George Wieland, Director of Mission Research and Training at Carey Baptist College. Drawing from the experience of Peter and Cornelius in Acts 10-11, George Wieland will share with us about the dynamics of host and guest at play in encounters of cross-cultural hospitality. He will use this to help inform us as we respond as Christians to the attacks against our Muslim neighbours here in Christchurch.
