Amy Peterson wonders if there may be “some hereditary reason for the fact that most of my dreams involve buses, trains, and backpacks.” From an early age much of her passion has focused on ways to see the world and make a difference in it. Having put reality to many of those dreams, she has learned that things are never quite what we expect.
Drawing from her varied overseas experiences, as well as her time living in an intentional community with her husband, Jack, she’s learned a bit about the vital, scriptural need for hospitality. Despite our fears, differences, and misgivings, we need to both extend and receive hospitality with humility, grace, and love. In Open Hearts, Open Homes, she doesn’t tell us how to do this. Rather, she comes alongside us on the journey, for Amy Peterson is a fellow sojourner with us.
Amy has also written a book about her travels called Dangerous Territory: My Misguided Quest to Save the World, available from Discovery House.
