University Friends Church Preaching: Helen Boursier
June 24, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Preaching theme: The Greatest Commandment (Love of God) & the 2nd greatest commandment (Love of Neighbor) based on Matthew 22:34-40. I will share an ethical-theological view as I draw from my experience as a volunteer chaplain with refugee women and children seeking asylum. I include testimonies of the families of their experiences before and after arrival to the US. I also share the witness of interfaith volunteers who assist refugee families, including the experience of two volunteers who went on a fact-finding trip to the Texas-Mexico border last week to see for themselves the treatment of the families. During the children’s message, I will explain the “immigration matrix” and our connection to the big picture of what is happening at our border. I also include suggestions for practical ways for our responsible response.
