Hospitality Themed Christian Art
The complexity of hospitality within the context of Christian Discipleship might not be obvious. However, my study of it has indicated that it’s a worthy topic to feature in this series of Christian themed abstract art.

This Hospitality themed Christian Art is the 10th painting in the series (not yet completed) of paintings in my collection called, Complexity: The Puzzle of Discipleship. This series explores a lot of complexities faced by modern-day disciples of Jesus. These paintings accompany the book I'm writing with the same title.
Here is a snippet of the chapter on hospitality: 'I always viewed myself as very hospitable. I love cooking for people and having people around. I’m always glad to have my friends’ round and my children’s friends’ round. However, in the past couple of years my mental health recovery has meant that I’ve struggled to keep my house clean and tidy (even more so than previously!). That sparks a lot of shame in me. Then there was the global pandemic which meant that I couldn't have people around either... It seems to me, though, that hospitality goes deeper than inviting people round to a nice clean and tidy house.' (© Hannah Kirk, 2021)
One of my favourite passages in the Bible about hospitality is Luke 10: 38-42
As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!” “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
