All are invited to an evening of learning, story sharing, and conversation in relation to our world's refugee/asylum/immigration crisis. We will gather in the church fellowship hall at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 30 and begin by talking about the history of immigration in our country and the definitions of immigration, refugee, and asylum seekers. We will briefly dive into the Biblical call for hospitality for the stranger, then hear stories from several people who have been through the immigration process or are connected to people working on their status. Finally, we will discuss ways we might get involved in caring for people stuck at the border, people in detention centers, and refugees around the world. This may be an opportunity to reach out and invited friends and neighbors to join in the conversation. All are welcome.
