The Immigrants' Journey Immersion Trip
May 23-26, 2019 | Register by March 1 | $850 + airfare
Have you been drawn to the story of immigration in the US? There are 11 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. How might the church be mobilized as an instrument of peace in this human reality? What does it look like to take seriously Jesus’ mandate to care for the foreigner among us? How might we approach immigration from a human perspective guided by a Jesus ethic? If you are interested, you have an opportunity to go on this immersion trip to San Diego & Tijuana. Email Raquel Jarabek by March 1 if you are interested in going.
