WDP 2013 - with its theme of "I Was a Stranger and You Welcomed Me" - saw us examining ways in which the Biblical call to welcome the stranger impacts our lives today. However this study, as always, should lead us forth to discover new and deeper meanings within the global community. To that end, WDPIC has partnered with United Methodist Women (UMW) in sharing stories of women’s experiences of migration. We started this partnership for the International Meeting of WDP, held in June 2013, in New York, and we continue it through this monthly Biblical Reflection on Global Migration. We are drawing writers from both networks to bring attention to issues of global migration and to extend the welcoming.
Come back often as we will be linking to each story as they are published.
