Metro Moms is one of my favorite blogs. They consistently treat relevant women’s topics with wisdom, humility, and often humor. It is always short enough for a busy mom to read in just a few minutes, but packed with enough insight to think on all day.
I love the recent series they are doing about hospitality. It caught my attention when Sheree posted the following statement and thought-provoking questions.
In recent months some of us have been discussing the issue of hospitality and how it seems cultural norms in this area have changed over the years…resulting in affects in the church. For example:
- Why is it that restaurants and coffee shops are so often the place where people enjoy hanging out and fellowshipping more than around the kitchen table?
- Why do so many young brides feel unprepared for the rigors and fun of homemaking, cooking and meal planning? Could it be partly because they didn’t “practice” hospitality at home with their family and friends?
- Why do many of today’s families spend less time enjoying meals together and more time eating on the run?
The outstanding series (so far) can be found here.
