Message from Mother Debra

Dear Parishioners and Friends of Church of Our Saviour:

“We can learn to see each other, and ourselves in each other and recognize that human beings are more alike than we are unalike.” – Maya Angelou

 

Today is World Refugee Day – Join in the conversation

 

Take action to celebrate and honor refugees worldwide!

  1. Contact your elected officials to share that you support refugee resettlement
  2. Tune in to a free webinar on June 18 at 4 PM ET titled “Our 1939 Moment: Continuing the Legacy of Welcome” to learn about the Episcopal Church’s history of welcoming refugees and opportunities for welcoming today
  3. Listen to “Hometown” the podcast hosted by Episcopal Migration Ministries
  4. Host a free film festival this World Refugee Day

 

One of the most tangible ways you can show your support now for refugees is by making a financial gift to EMM. By making a gift, you not only stand with and support an historic ministry of The Episcopal Church in a time of great need, you ensure refugees are welcomed to a haven of safety and opportunity. Give securely online or, text “EMM” to 41444

 

Remember Jesus was a refugee, who said, “Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs,” when he saw how the children were being treated.

 

We are more alike than we are unalike.

 

Peace & blessings

Mo. Deb
