Do the refugees make you uncomfortable? Do they shake you from your feeling a safety and make you rethink life? Perhaps they make you hug your children tighter at night.
Today my husband and I discussed the possibility of WWIII calmly trying to assess whether that is a reasonable concern.
Friends, my faith does not solve these problems, but it assures me that the risks are worth taking.
Another name for the Holy Spirit is “the one who stirs up.” The Holy Spirit both stirs us up and comforts us at the same time (I don’t know how, but its true).
Christianity isn’t supposed to be sitting on our laurels of blessings, feeling at one with the world.
It is a call to action to serve and love one another, to be open to other human being
And lets be honest, that’s dangerous. Its dangerous to open yourself to being in relationship with others. But that is our call as Christian.
We are called to preach and embody Christ and the Good News Even at the risk of our own lives. Does that include refugees who might be terrorists?
As a Christian you are called to be in some kind of relationship with every other human being on the earth.
Because they too are creations of God.
Do the refugees make you uncomfortable?
That might just be God tapping you on the shoulder.
