Crossing Borders: Migration, Theology, and the Human Journey
Immigration is a complex issue that is reshaping the cultural, economic and political landscape of the planet. The Crossing Borders: Migration, Theology, and the Human Journey module offers the opportunity for prayer, reading and reflection as well as discussion and discovery related to this critical and controversial issue of our day.
Each group in the immigration debate makes rightful claims to issues like economic stability, American jobs, cultural integrity, fiscal constraints, national security, human rights, property rights, labor rights, law and order, and so on. Yet, the Bible reminds us that the debates surrounding immigration are first of all about human beings who are made in the image and likeness of God. Policy debates, statistics, spreadsheets, and economic outcomes have their place in the debate, but without considering the human costs surrounding migration we have an impoverished sense of the core issues at stake and a diminished sense of our own place in the world.
This eight session module provides participants a chance to find common ground and to discover more about themselves, their values, our God and the millions of people who are on the move in every part of the world.
Registration for the module is $150. Additional materials costs are described in the program flyer. For more information, contact Mary Wright at
