“Sanctuary Church” Conversation

March 12, 2017 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

The Board of Justice, Outreach and Service has been in a conversation on what would it mean to welcome our neighbors or to be a “sanctuary church” or to advocate for immigration justice. Now it is time to widen the conversation and to plan for deepened conversations.

Interested people are invited to join in this conversation. This is an initial meeting and we hope to keep it to less than 59 minutes. We envision coming out of the meeting with tasks (and task groups) that may include to:

  • listen to cry of God’s people
  • plan for an educational series on immigrant justice
  • discern the intersections between immigrant injustice and other forms of injustice (racial, economic, environmental, sexual identity, etc.)
  • discover the resources we currently have
  • ascertain what else we need to know or do
  • support people unjustly treated as we await advocacy and change
  • embody “sanctuary” as a community of faith

Resources you may wish to look at include:
