Jesus was a Migrant
A biblically grounded presentation of the value of migrants, immigrants, and refugees to each and all of us.
The Bible is rich in powerful stories of migrants. The children of Israel were migrants. Jesus was a migrant. The world is filled with migrants and refugees whose dramatic stories are impossible to ignore. Deirdre Cornell shares her personal experiences and gets to the heart of the matter when she writes:
Human mobility certainly entails sacrifice. Migration has caused--and been caused by--tremendous suffering. But it has also served as a source of great blessing.
This is what being a migrant really means, what being a Christian means, and what migrants mean to the spiritual and material growth of a society that welcomes them.2014
