Evangelicals increasingly are speaking out regarding the need for a comprehensive reform of our nation’s broken immigration system. Millions are affected, including more than 11 million people and an additional 5 to 6 million of their innocent children and other dependents. This blog contains a number of posts on this topic, setting forth solid biblical and theological principles and perspectives. Unfortunately, our political parties have been polarized and stalemated for years.
But the recent election results offer a unique opportunity. Both political parties are looking for new ways to work together. In recent years, a growing number of Evangelical leaders have been calling for comprehensive immigration reform (links to representative organizations are found in the side bar to this blog). In recent months, key religious, political, and educational leaders have been looking for more balanced approaches to addressing this situation. A significant number of those that are affected are our brothers and sisters in Christ.
Today we as brothers and sisters in Christ have a new and tangible way to join in the call for comprehensive immigration. During the past year I have had the privilege of representing The Wesleyan Church and Indiana Wesleyan University on the Midwest Coalition for Immigration Reform and the Region’s Future.
Now you can add your name to this call, at the following link: http://midwestimmigration.org/
Together we can make a huge difference. Thank you for your prayerful consideration about this opportunity and for your courage to take a stand for our Lord and Savior and his present and coming Kingdom.
Your brother in Christ,
