Scope and content
File consists of a draft typescript of "Liturgy as Hospitality", a talk presented at the Episcopal Liturgical Conference (Hamden, CT), on September 30, 1972. Nouwen writes that the Emmaus story reveals how the stranger becomes the intimate friend. He looks at the three themes of hospitality: that it reveals the stranger as the friend, that it brings a greater unity among those who brought the friend into their home, and that it creates a spontaneous desire to bring others into the new-found communion and see them in liturgy. Some of these ideas may have been published in "Reaching Out" (1975).
