Adult Education: Refugees
Refugees, especially refugees from Syria, have been on our minds and in our prayers for many months now and their plight has moved some of us to advocate for them, including sponsoring/receiving immigrants from Syria and other conflict zones.
Mission Outreach is hosting a parish conversation on Sunday, January 10th at 10:30 a.m. in the Parish House.
Christopher+ will open our time together with prayer. Paul Mazur and Juliet Baker will share their knowledge of Muslim worship and of the Syrian families in Waldo county, including some of the Roman Catholic faith. We will also use resources from the Episcoal Public Policy Network. Christopher+ will share the position of the Episcopal Diocese of Maine and the ways the diocese anticipates getting involved. He will facilitate conversation among us and then we will set a follow-up meeting time and conclude with prayer.
