"I was a Stranger and you Welcomed Me." The Biblical Imperative to Love the Refugee. The Jericho Road Experience Doing This in Buffalo, NY.

Myron Glick, MD

Ballroom D

Throughout the Biblical scriptures the heart of God for the stranger and the refugee is clear. There is no doubt that God's people should stand with those who are the most vulnerable even in today’s world. In this workshop Dr. Myron Glick and his team will explore this Biblical imperative, and will discuss what it means for followers of Jesus to advocate for the stranger and refugee even when faced with much opposition by others. They will share about their experiences working with refugees, asylum seekers and undocumented neighbors at Jericho Road in Buffalo NY.
