SPC Advisory Board Chair Alan Levin recently shared this snippet from Marty Lowenthal's e-blog:

"The words 'host' and 'guest' have the same Indo-European root, ghosti, and suggest we as hosts and guests have a mutual and reciprocal relationship of embracing each other.

What is there more kindly than the feeling between host and guest? ~ Aeschylus

As the space of the universe hosts everything within it, may the universe of our heart host all others.

May we experience the mutuality of hosting.

As we welcome others in our homes, may we create a warm, loving, and encouraging environment for them."
