A Can of Worms & Immigration Stories

Sep 23, 2018 | Megan Ramer, Sermons

And yet heed the call to mark (Just)Peace Sunday with our Mennonite kindred across the country and world by reflecting on the sorry state of our immigration system here in the U.S. What might Joseph’s story have to offer those of us distressed and those of us whose lives are disrupted by the vulnerabilities of migration?
