The ministry of Christ was characterised by hospitality (often with the wrong kinds of people) and the main focus of Christian worship is a table. This new anthology reflects on the many groups of people that are often excluded and the surprises that may be in store if, after all, they turned out to be angels in disguise - divine messengers with a word we need to hear. Following Jesus' teaching in Matthew 25, this anthology asks who, in today's competitive world, are the hungry, the thirsty, the stranger, the naked, the sick and the imprisoned. It explores the opportunities we have for offering Christ's love and welcome, and for bringing blessing for all.
