Samford University's Beeson Divinity School continues its "Table Grace: A Biblical Call to Hospitality" series of convocations with the first service of the spring semester on Tuesday, Jan. 27.

Beeson dean Dr. Timothy George will preach on the topic "Midnight Hospitality," based on Luke 11: 1-13. The service will include communion.

The popular Table Grace series began in the fall and has focused on key Biblical passages that highlight various aspects of the call to hospitality.

The weekly services will be held on most Tuesdays through April 21 at 11 a.m. in Samford's A. Gerow Hodges Chapel. The public is invited.
