Immigrants And The True Story

Immigrants And The True Story

Introduction

If you ask 3 people their thoughts on the “crisis at the border,” you are likely to get 4 different emotionally charged opinions. In this moment, the elders of Missio Dei would like to remind our Missio family of our allegiance to King Jesus and citizenship in His Kingdom. We want to say, the gospel is by nature political as it reaches into every dimension of creation; but it is not partisan. Our goal is not to divide but to unify our churches as a family of missionary servants who remember what story we are a part of and encourage each of us to faithfully take up our role in the missio Dei. Therefore, the question we want to wrestle with is: How does the True Story shape our understanding and consideration of the immigrant, asylum seeker, and refugee?
