Missional Journal Vol. 4 No. 1 – Theological Hospitality

January 6, 2010

David Buschart argues that theological boundaries are not an obstacle to hospitality but actually a necessary concomitant.  He writes, “Not only do boundaries help define who we are, but also the recognition and maintenance of boundaries constitutes a necessary condition for effective and sustainable hospitality.  Without boundaries, hospitality is impossible.  People in “helping professions” know this.  It they are to be of help, therapists, nurses, ministers and doctors must establish and maintain appropriate boundaries between themselves and the people they sesrve. Would-be helpers will be of little use if they lose a sense of their own identity and  completely identify with the person they hope to assist.  The same is true of those who extend hospitality.”  What do you think?
