Walking in Welcome: Migration, Church, and the Call to Ministry

Migration is where the global and the local meet. In our country, our diocese, and our communities, we engage daily with people all around us whose stories are part of a global phenomenon: the largest forced migration since World War II. In the U.S. national conversation, in our politics and policy, how did we get here? How do those who migrate experience our country’s immigration system? How do those who migrate make their way to and through central Tennessee? How and to what are we being called – as individuals and a faith community – in this time, in this place?

Join us for “Walking in Welcome” on Saturday, February 15, at Christ Church Cathedral, Nashville. This day-long workshop brings together important information and context-setting alongside examples of the local work of welcome, culminating in group discernment and action-planning for where God is calling us, in this time and place. Led by facilitator Allison Duvall, Manager for Church Relations & Engagement at Episcopal Migration Ministries, this day promises to teach, inspire, and galvanize participants to action.
