‘Christian Hospitality’: A Scripture-Based Interpretation of EDI from Trinity Western University (TRU)

“Canadian society promotes the ideas of equity, diversity and inclusion.  This is good.  As an institution rooted in the Scriptures, Trinity Western University is able to identify a distinct foundation for these ideas.  As a community of Christ-followers, we desire to be faithful in the practice of Christian hospitality.”


“Practising Christian hospitality undergirds and promotes equity, diversity and inclusion.

Equity is founded in our being created in the image of God; every human being has inherent dignity and worth (Gen 1:26-28; 5:1-2; Col 1:15).

Diversity is inherent in God’s creation; it is good (Gen 1:11-12, 21-25).

Inclusion is essential to the body of Christ; we are diverse and interdependent (1 Cor 12:12-31; Isa 56:3-8).”
