Georgia May’s parents had an open-door policy. Literally. Most of the time the front door of their home was left open, so that people would feel welcome at any time. Consequently, Georgia grew up with a house full of people who’s didn’t feel they had a family of their own. This radical approach to hospitality led to many lives being transformed. But Georgia also knows first hand what can happen when radical hospitality goes wrong. So we ask her, when is radical too radical?

    I found this quite a confronting episode, in terms of what Georgia said and then Tim’s story. Sometimes we need to reverse the golden rule, “Love yourself as you love your neighbour”.

    • Agreed. One of the things we discovered was that hospitality has to be an overflow of our love of God, of ourselves, and the loving relationships in our household. If it isn’t, then we found we were quickly running on empty. Tim
