As this little booklet reminds us, life isn't always what we expect it to be. But sometimes everything can change with just a knock at the door…
What would happen if Jesus showed up at your door and wanted nothing more than to spend time with you? Would it be weird? What would you tell him about your life? What wouldn't you tell him? Would you invite him to stay?
The Parable of the Unexpected Guest is a quick read that you could simply pass along for someone to read on their own, or you could use the booklet to engage in a spiritual conversation about its contents. There are discussion questions in the back of the booklet intended just for this.
Margot Starbuck, author of The Girl in the Orange Dress and Unsqueezed, says of the booklet, “The Parable of the Unexpected Guest is for each one of us who thinks we've got our lives together and for those of us who are very clear that we don't. Its message about being human, which is deeply true, invites readers into life that really is life. Read it, live it, share it with others."
