Religious Leaders Embrace Immigrants

St. Martha’s Hall believes in the dignity of each human being and we support an environment that empowers people to live up to their potential and that promotes social justice, diversity and peace.

The New York Times recently published an article regarding the nationwide religious response to the vulnerable children at the border, many of whom have been traveling alone or with dangerous people they don’t know. They are coming to find their families or they are fleeing violence and poverty we cannot imagine.  A moving quote from the article is “The first thing is to make sure we understand these are not issues, these are persons. These children are made in the image of God, and we ought to respond to them with compassion, not with fear.”
