[TEDxLSE] Writer and pilgrim Adam Weymouth reflects on the remarkable hospitality he encountered during an eight month walk taken from his home in Wiltshire, England to Istanbul. In the Bible, he says, 'the word often translated as "hospitality" is the Greek philoxenia, a love of strangers. And this goes both ways, for in a hospitable relationship each is a stranger unto the other – it is about recognising both the other within oneself, and oneself in the other.' 'We can never know where the act of hospitality will lead us. We would do well to open our doors more often.'
