"Immigration, the Church, and the Bible"
A day-long workshop for clergy and lay leaders
Friday, March 11, 2011
9:00 am to 4:00 pm
Wesley United Methodist Church
114 Main St. Worcester, MA
Presenter: Professor M. Daniel Carroll R., Distinguished Professor of Old Testament at Denver Seminary, Author of Christians at the Border: Immigration, the Church, and the Bible
Cost of registration: $20 includes lunch and a copy of Strangers in the Land, the 6-week devotional guide on immigration from the editors of Sojourners. Scholarships are available.
Why attend? You can help shift the conversation about immigration reform. We need to know what our Bible says about this contentious topic. We believe that local congregations can be centers of respectful, honest, biblically-grounded conversation about hard issues. Like most hard choices, there is no room for cheap grace; there is a path to costly discipleship. This workshop and the resources that follow can help.
