From Strangers Into Neighbors: Immigrants and Refugees
Wednesdays, November 6-December 11
(no meeting November 27)
The United States of America was founded as a nation of immigrants. People from all over the world have looked to the US as a beacon of hope, as a land of opportunity. Immigration has always been a part of our national fabric, yet we as a people seem to have never had a clear idea of the role of immigration on our policies and society.
Along with recent world-wide refugee crises, Americans are having to consider what it means to be a neighbor to people we might have before considered strangers. This series, in which experts working in the field of immigration and refugee services will present on their experiences, is geared toward us understanding:
What is the role of faith in how we approach questions of immigration and what can we do as the church to be faithful to our calling?
