Lee Street is hosting a Four-Part Interactive Workshop on Immigration
Engaging immigration thought and discussion from a Biblical perspective. Participants will reflect on the Biblical mandate to welcome the stranger and consider what that means in our current context.
SESSION 1: OCTOBER 22, 2017
Addressing the Brokenness of the Current System and Why the Church Cares
“My family waited in line, why can’t immigrants today?” An interactive exercise exploring how the U.S. immigration system works, its complications and injustices, simulating the challenges and complexities of “getting in line” to become a citizen.
SESSION 2: OCTOBER 29, 2017
This session has been used by hundreds of groups across the U.S. to learn about the changing American immigration system, discover where one’s family fits in, and hear how God has used—and continues to use—the church.
SESSION 3: NOVEMBER 19, 2017
How Did We Get Here?
A facilitated group activity on the particular challenges and opportunities resulting from immigration that are manifesting themselves in our communities.
SESSION 4: NOVEMBER 26, 2017
Now that we know, what do we do? Breakout group discussions for tips on taking action nationally, locally, or in your church’s congregational life and worship.
