Practicing Hospitality 

We came back to Hitchin last week for my sister-in-law’s wedding. The kids had special roles to play: 

One of the wedding verses that we had at our wedding was Romans 12, which includes the instruction to practice hospitality. You’d think it wouldn’t be possible to host people in a campervan that’s crowded with 5, but we managed it. 

Last week Nana met us in Street and joined us for lunch. This weekend, on the morning after the wedding Grandma came knocking and was invited in for breakfast. Then half an hour later, Ben’s cousin and her daughter came over. We made tea for the visitors (though they had to bring their own cups) and the kids played in their bed pods for a good half hour, colouring and making cards. 

It was so lovely showing friends and relatives round the van and having people over. It was a reminder that the van is serving the purpose that we intended for it – it’s our home and the kids are loving the space and having people to share it with them.
