As Thomas Maier writes, hospitality is “a willingness to receive others when they are in need, an authentic desire to lead and serve others with a specific orientation toward the common good.” Hospitality entails sharing ourselves with others and addressing the needs of people who are marginalized in our society. It therefore promotes equality. The aspects of servant leadership that hospitality requires are discussed.
