E 133 Welcoming Asylum Seekers

The coming of asylum seekers was largely unexpected for the communities in which they settled. Many struggled to know how to welcome them, but those who took the risk also discovered the joy of new encounter.

Stephen Burns writes from his own experience of such struggles and joy. he looks at the importance of context in shaping our understanding of the gospel, and how our celebration can reflect the hospitality of Jesus in the challenge to practical action.
