JustMatters – Exploring Migration: A Faith Journey – April/May 2018
The beginning of the third millennium has been characterized by the global reality of migration, and by a growing number of migrants. This, in turn, has led to a marked increase in fear and national sentiment which seeks to close borders – to turn away the other. As Christians, how should we navigate and respond to the tension between our global reality and our calling as disciples?
JustFaith Ministries’ new 8-week module – Exploring Migration: A Faith Journey – offers participants the opportunity to learn more about the challenges of contemporary migration, and explore together, through prayer and dialogue, a way to answer our call to discipleship.
