Who is my neighbor? A Christian conversation engaging immigration.
Saturday, May 11, 2013 from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM (MDT)
El Paso, TX
Immigration is one of the most complicated issues of our time. In the midst of the rhetoric on both sides of the political debate, Christians often find themselves torn between the desire to uphold the law and the call to minister to the vulnerable.
Please join fellow Christians from across the Borderplex as we engage this incredibly important issue. Matthew Soerens, co-author of Welcoming the Stranger, will be guiding a conversation on immigration and how to engage from a Biblical perspective.
Lunch & childcare (through 5th grade) are available.
When & Where
El Paso CCDA
The Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) is a network of Christians committed to seeing people and communities wholistically restored. We believe that God wants to restore us not only to right relationship with Himself but also with our own true selves, our families and our communities. Not just spiritually, but emotionally, physically, economically, and socially. Not by offering mercy alone, but by undergirding mercy with justice.
To this end, we follow Jesus's example of reconciliation. We go where the brokenness is. We live among the people in some of America's neediest neighborhoods. We become one with our neighbors until there is no longer an "us" and "them" but only a "we." And, in the words of the Prophet Jeremiah, "we work and pray for the well-being of our city [or neighborhood]," trusting that if the entire community does well and prospers, then we will prosper also.
