Hospitality became an expression of the covenant relationship with God and with human beings. Through our hospitality, we imitate the love and generosity of God. We respond to God's hospitality by exhibiting compassion and justice to all. We are especially to insure that the hungry are fed, that unjust distributions of wealth are adjusted, that the land is protected, that justice is done, and that the outcast is welcomed at table.
