A Cup of Cold Water
Even if you'd make the perfect contestant for the British TV show "Can't cook, won't cook," this book is still for you! Lack of culinary ability is probably one of the commonest objections to getting involved in giving hospitality. As Julia Jones looks thoughtfully at this subject you will see that food plays only a small part, and, as the title indicates, hospitality can be as simple as tea and biscuits or a cold drink on a hot day. Through true hospitality, relationships between Christians can be wonderfully deepened. In this highly practical little book, Julia Jones gives careful consideration to such matters as the Biblical basis for giving hospitality, why some people find it hard to show hospitality, what hospitality "looks like", how to get ready for it and how to exercise hospitality with sensitivity.
