Welcoming the Stranger (Guest Speaker: Pedro Sosa)

Pedro Sosa was our guest speaker this past Sunday (the 17th). Pedro works with the American Friends Service Committee and directs the Project Voice Immigrant Rights Program which “enhances the ability of immigrants to affirm their human rights and impact public policies that affect them.” Pedro shared during worship and also hosted a Q&A time after worship.

Deuteronomy 10:19: You shall also love the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Matthew 25:35: I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.

Hebrews 13:1-3: Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured.

What is God showing you? What is Spirit helping you see?

What are you feeling nudged/called/inspired to do?

To what does Love invite you?
