What does it mean to be people of faith in an unjust world?
In this four-week study group, we take an unflinching look at current U.S. immigration policies and ask, What does the Lord require of us in this moment in response to this situation? We will weave between scriptural guidance, theological writings on ethics, and case studies of resistance actions grounded in faith imperatives. Overview and full syllabus here.
