Another Lenten thought

Our congregation has a long history of supporting refugee/immigrant resettlement. Not only have we received families from dozens of nations who were in turmoil, we also make a regular habit of supplying rice to Good Samaritan Ministries on the border of Texas and Mexico.

The risks associated with not receiving refugees with love and deep hospitality are far greater than the risks associated with receiving persons in great need. When we refuse welcome and hospitality we risk our very souls and the soul of a nation we all love and respect.
