“Muslims believe we have to support refugees because our prophets were refugees. Other faith groups believe this too. Moses and Jesus left persecution and traveled to a new life by order of God.
I feel it’s a duty and a calling from God to accept refugees.”— Suzanne
“One of our rabbis made an announcement that they were going to be starting a conversational English program matching congregants with asylum seekers from Russia.
I feel like God tapped me on the shoulder and said, ‘Harold, this is something you should be doing.’”— Harold
“My faith is built on the idea that the Gospel is about things that make life better for everyone. Radical inclusion is the foundation for that.
If we can’t get welcoming, including and loving the stranger right, the rest falls apart.”— Frances
“I think the key thin to realize is that we’re fundamentally the same. We’re human beings. We’re citizens of this planet. We want the same things for our families. We want peace.”
“The Judeo-Christian and Islamic philosophies are all based on peace and love and welcoming the stranger.
I’ve heard the Rabbi say many times, ‘Everyone is welcome here.’
For me, religion is peace and love. That’s what religion means to me.”— Allison
