As we embrace a higher view of the image of God, a humble view of our human divisions and a home as a reconciled people, we can see the very thing our world craves: reconciliation.
Since Eden, none of us has ever really been home. But the King will return, and it is only in this Kingdom of diverse oneness that we will truly be home. And that should inform our posture toward the strangers and foreigners among us.
God’s very character is to welcome the unwelcomed—those who are seeking a home. As the Church, we are called to enter into and empathize with the immigrant’s struggle for home.
