Dear Friends,
We are hearing a lot in the news about the possibility of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala being lodged temporarily at Edwards base. Here below is a link from our New England Methodist Conference to an article by a Methodist missionary serving in Honduras, sent by the Methodist bishop serving Honduras. I hope this will be read and prayerfully discussed as essential background to the current discussions.
Scripture commands us unambiguously to be hospitable to strangers and sojourners (Exodus 22:21, 23:9, Leviticus 19:33-34) — and Jesus says that when we welcome (or fail to welcome) the stranger we welcome (or fail to welcome) Him (Matthew 25:31-46).
As Christians, whatever our views, may we exhibit the grace and forbearance and peace towards others and one another which Jesus teaches and commands of us. And may we be open, above all, to God’s Spirit of grace and peace.
His grace and peace be with you always,
Pastor Tim
