Sorry, No Room

November 20, 2015

Many well-intentioned people have decided that refugees are a threat to their safety.  I guess it's human nature to want to remain insulated from change and any small potential of insecurity.  Even just being around people who are different from one's self can feel uncomfortable.  

 

Jesus invites us to lean toward love and inclusion, even if it disrupts our comfort zone and tarnishes our reputation.  Jesus lived as a human in vulnerable chaos in order to proclaim a new order - the Way of Love.  The way of true life. 

He opened himself to criticism and even death as he proclaimed a way of inclusion and forgiveness in a world of violent exclusion.  It's ironic that there was no room for his parents in the inn at his birth.  

 

When we welcome the stranger, refugee or enemy, we welcome Jesus.  For they are made in God's image and deserve to be loved as fellow sisters and brothers.  

 

How would you feel if you were a refugee escaping Syria or elsewhere?  

How would you hope to be treated by other countries?

Would you rather be known for your fear or your love?

 

Prayer:

God, I want to always lean toward love and inclusion like you've demonstrated through Jesus.
