We all feel that pull to make a difference in the world - to reach out more, champion the gospel, help those in need - but we also feel busy.

And since most people are more likely to step into a living room than a sanctuary, hospitality is a strategic way to reach out.
Jack Bennett has a wife, two kids, the perfect job - and the perfect affair. When he is caught and it all comes crashing down, Jack is left with no one to turn to. No friends. No family, except his recovering drug addict of a sister. On a Sunday morning drive, he sees a homeless man locked out of a church service, banging on the door. He stops and offers the guy a cup of coffee. He asks the man his name, and the guy says Yeshua. As in, Jesus.
