NCC Weekly News: Christian Unity and Immigration
From Jim: Unity in Common Purpose
We’ve just completed the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. All over the world, Christians studied scripture, preached sermons, and met to further the cause of unity. In addition to prayer, worship, and study, Christians in the United States have found unity in their opposition to the Trump administration’s crackdown on refugees and Muslims.
