Our church is committing to 40 days of Scripture and Prayer as part of the “I Was a Stranger Challenge.” The aim is to get people thinking about immigration through the lens of their Christian faith.
“At the heart of why evangelical Christians believe we should love,
welcome, and seek justice for immigrants is our commitment to
the authority of Scripture over every aspect of our lives. The
Bible speaks clearly and repeatedly to God’s concern for the
immigrant, guiding the Christ-follower toward principles that we
believe should inform both the interpersonal ways that we
interact with our immigrant neighbors and the public policies
that we support.” (Taken from the World Relief website.)
We’ll be sharing some of our thoughts through these 40 days on our blog. We’ll try to post daily, but no guarantees!
Will you join the challenge? Begin today!
