Open Heart; Open Hands: Answering the Refugee Problem

We don't do 'Desperation' very well. Especially when we're afraid. The current 'Crisis of Isis' is not an immigrant story, but we can't escape soem of Neil Diamond's lyrics from his anthem "AMERICA":

Far, We've been traveling far
Without a home But not without a star

Free, Only want to be free
We huddle close, Hang on to a dream
Home, Don't it seem so far away
Oh, we're traveling light today
In the eye of the storm - In the eye of the storm

Of course, the Syrian, Kurd and Iraqi refugee are not 'coming to America.' They're simply running from certain death by starvation or violence. And by far most of them will end up in Middle Eastern and European countries. Yet a few will choose the long route through the grueling vetting process to be admitted to the United States. While the man on the street frets about potential terrorists, how should the Body of Christ, the Kingdom of God respond? Today, Norm and Cher tackle that question head-on.
