WELCOMING THE STRANGER
You probably know personally someone who immigrated to this country as a child or adult. Nearly every news cycle has a story about the thousands of immigrants entering our country daily through our southern border. Whether we agree with the method or not, we cannot deny that our country began as a nation of immigrants, and that it still is. In 2019, immigrants, that is foreign born residents of the US, comprised 13.7% of our population. (www.migrationpolicy.org)
Immigration is discussed and debated in the news, among politicians, and even in the Church. How we are to address immigration? As Christ-followers, we must base our words and actions on immigration on the Word of God.
We want to offer you a few resources to help you prayerfully consider the issue of immigration to the US, and how, as representatives of Christ on this Earth, we are to respond. These are resources that we have personally vetted. There are many out there, and we have included others in past Library posts. (See Library Categories.)
