Many struggled to hold back the tears as they recalled the life of a great and Godly man. It was the memorial service for Severt Andrewson, an artist who for more than twenty years had painted beautiful pictures for Character Sketches and other IBLP publications. However, those who were closest to Severt did not remember him for his exceptional art talent but rather for his hospitality. One person shared this tribute: “Severt and his wife Ruth turned their home into a place where I could always come for counsel and encouragement!
Hospitality is making room in our hearts and in our homes for guests and treating them like part of the family.
