AbstractThis article aims to develop a theology of mission in the context of refugees and asylum seekers, using the Australian situation as an illustration. It suggests that hospitality is the most appropriate approach to such a theology of mission. Ten dimensions of hospitality are explored: defense of human rights, political action, settlement assistance, sanctuary, being welcoming multicultural churches, intercultural learning, interfaith dialogue, awareness of the ethics of welcome, meals and personal friendship, and openness to a transforming divine presence.
