Bishop Invites Participation in 'Call to Radical Hospitality'
January 06, 2011
Don't forget to register for the January 22 immigration training event at the San Francisco Airport Hyatt Hotel.
The Saturday event is designed to equip, inspire, and mobilize leaders for just and compassionate immigration reform – and all lay and clergy who are committed to creating safe places for our immigrant brothers and sisters are encouraged to attend.
Workshop topics include Race and Immigration, Immigration and Economics, Immigration Reform, Justice for Our Neighbors, Church-based Organizing, and the History of Migration.
Bishop Warner H. Brown, Jr. invites participation from the California-Nevada Annual Conference at the training, which is sponsored by the Western Jurisdiction. He says he believes it will be of value to most if not all of the Conference's pastors, as well as to lay people engaged in ministries of outreach, justice, or mercy.
When people come to us for help, the bishop says, "It is important for us to know how we can give them solid information, direct them to sources of information, and help us to know when we are following the law as we work with people in our communities."
