Xenial means hospitable, especially to visiting strangers or foreigners. Of the relation between a host and guest; friendly. I will confess that I have to very intentionally remember where I am and who is around me when I am out and have a mask on. I have to be intentional about making eye contact and smiling. It is hard to be hospitable when I am tired – and I am tired on many fronts. Bone tired. And it is ok to be that way, but also important to find the ways to be xenial. Others are surely also very tired and being hospitable during these uncertain times is important. What does hospitality look like to in your day? Are there new ways you can extend hospitality?
