Rev. Terri Hord Owens, Disciples GMP, joined other national faith leaders this morning in support of Asylum Seekers, as she said:
“ Our opportunity is to demonstrate to migrants that ‘the Lord will fight for you’ (Ex. 14:14) by offering the presence of God through welcome and healing—not punitive pushbacks—as they pursue potential protection offered through our nation’s and international asylum laws, and as we seek solutions to root causes of violence against them.”  See Rev. Terri's full comments HERE
