The church lives between the borders of Christ’s first coming and his promised return. National borders and immigration laws are also a part of the context in which the church finds itself. In this “in-between” place, the CRC is called to demonstrate profound and welcoming love to those who seek to join our communities. So how do we do it?
This webinar will cover these three topics to help churches to image God’s love in them and “welcome the stranger:”
Our presenter: Kris Van Engen is the Congregational Justice Mobilizer for the Office of Social Justice and Christian Reformed World Relief Committee.
