You Welcomed Me

The issue of refugees and immigrants has become so politicized in our culture with narratives of fear and protectionism often drowning out the facts and the sheer humanity of their plight. Amazingly, we might even miss the key truth behind the question, what would Jesus do? That's why this thoughtful book by Kent Annan is so necessary now, to share stories and insights through the lens of scripture. Read it as a tool to engage, because as Christ-followers we must engage in one of the most urgent humanitarian crises of our lifetime.
