Finding Jesus in the Stranger

May 13, 2018


As Christians, we’re called to welcome immigrants and treat them as we would other citizens – with fairness, charity and love. In short, we’re expected to treat “the least of these” as we would Jesus. But what should we do in these turbulent times when some government leaders are treating immigrants unjustly and seeking their deportation? We should focus on what we believe as Anabaptists: Keep Jesus at the center of our faith, community at the center of our lives and reconciliation at the center of our work. Then we can advance social justice, embrace the common good and Find Jesus in the Stranger.
