Classes choices are:
• Immigration and the Bible. This study shares the story of the Bible as a narrative of immigrants and migration. Exploring the Biblical and theological understanding of immigration, immigrants and migration, this study seeks to enable the participants to examine what it is to be a sojourner and to live the Biblical mandate of hospitality for “the stranger” and “aliens” in our midst.
• Poverty. Our Christian faith invites each of us and our faith communities to become agents of God’s compassion and healing in a wounded world. Poverty is a human rights issue with grave impact on women and children. This mission study on poverty is designed to help participants recognize and claim for themselves the connections between scripture, church tradition, compassion for the poor, social outreach and social justice.
