Study Resource Focuses on Migration
A study resource entitled “Sanctuary for All” focuses on the Methodist response to migration and foreigners. It is specifically prepared with Churches in mind, and can be used anywhere in the world. With media attention on the global migration crisis, it is important to thoughtfully, and prayerfully consider what our response should be.
The Rev. Dr. Inderjit Bhogal, the developer of this resource, is part of the Connexional Team for The Methodist Church in Britain. He has previously worked as the Leader/CEO of the Corymeela Community in Northern Ireland, was the CEO of the Yorkshire and Humber Faiths Forum, and served as the President of the Methodist Conference (The Methodist Church in Britain).
Additionally, several WMC member churches have made resources available to use in local congregations and for individual prayer and reflection.
