Welcoming the Stranger

I have just returned from an Ecumenical conference on welcoming Migrants. We heard more about the scriptures that mandate welcoming the stranger, and we heard from people who are hurting because they are displaced from their homes. There are many things that cause people to become displaced – violence, hunger, climate change, drought – all are desperate situations. And people in desperate situations deserve compassion and to be treated with dignity.

And – all are beloved by God.

Thank you for being patient with my being gone for this conference – you will be hearing more about it from me!
