Welcoming the stranger

Fikre Tsehai is a special guy. He’s the manager of the CLWR Refugee Resettlement program. Refugee resettlement was one of the reasons the Lutheran Churches in Canada came together more than 65years ago immediately after the Second World War.

Fikre works hard to give congregations the opportunity to “Welcome the Stranger”, an important task for the committed disciple. More than 40,000 refugees have come through CLWR since 1946.

A lot of great resources and information is available at http://www.clwr.org/What-We-Do/refugee-resettlement.cfm

“The stranger who sojourns with you shall be to you as the native among you and you shall love him as yourself.” Leviticus 19:34

Why not make your congregation part of this great legacy?
