Hospitality Practiced in Jail and Home

Acts 16:35-40 NRSV

The police reported these words to the magistrates, and they were afraid when they heard that they were Roman citizens; so they came and apologized to them. And took them out and asked them to leave the city. (Acts 16:38-39)

Many tragedies can be avoided when we see and treat all people with worth, even on the first encounter. We pray for the healing of this and other lands and communities, which need healing from systemic trauma and unrest.
