"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4

Romans 12:9-21
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

How is a Christian to think and live in a nation divided by immigration, refugees, documented and undocumented aliens? We are being bullied on both sides, told that we are either racist xenophobes, or, on the other extreme, that we are single handily contributing to the downfall of America by letting in terrorist Muslims. How is the church to live and love when we are fearful and unclear? When does the church speak up, and with what voice? Does God have anything to say? How does the Bible speak about strangers among us? Join us as we look at the words of St. Paul, who crossed many borders but only lived in one for one KING.
