What does the Bible have to say about migration? Last weekend we hosted five international speakers to discuss the so-called ‘migration crisis’ and Christian responses to it. They were joined by four students, who offered reflections on the topic from their own varied perspectives. The entire event was conducted in both English and Spanish, with live translation undertaken by the amazing Sergio Zapata and Inés Velasquez-McBryde.
