“How can I sit with you in what you love and be present?” – Alexa Mason
“…within race, if there’s anything you take from conversations think about Christ and how he laid down the many privileges he had and he had many heavenly holy privileges and you have to do the same and if you aren’t willing to do that from the biblical standpoint of following Jesus…we just won’t get there. You have to have humility to do that.” – Alexa Mason
“Hospitality is the generous serving of others, considering them better than oneself. It incorporates both inviting in and going out, which is why hospitality is a lifestyle not limited to our homes.” – Alexa Mason
