Mukilteo Lighthouse Session

Recently I read this quote from Henri Nouwen in his book Reaching Out:

 

“Hospitality means primarily the creation of free space where the stranger can enter and become a friend instead of an enemy. Hospitality is not to change people, but to offer them space where change can take place. It is not to bring men and women over to our side, but to offer freedom not disturbed by dividing lines.”

 

I couldn’t help but think of Addie.  Her hospitality to me has been literal and figurative, and I’m so grateful to call her a friend.  Besides, look how beautiful her family is?
