Background – The Real Practice of Hospitality
The real practice of hospitality makes people feel they belong. It makes people feel special, important, and warmly welcomed. It’s receiving strangers like they are family, and communicating through words and actions that they are well worth your time and effort. It’s providing an environment that is both comfortable and interesting. It’s about community and a sense of belonging and safety.
