SOCIAL JUSTICE & ADVOCACY
With a desire to be “the hands and feet of Christ” in whatever small way I am able, I Corinthians 12:12-27 and on behalf of Nexus Prayer, I am blessed to be able to pray, volunteer, and financially support a few select ministries and organizations who have dedicated themselves to helping “the least of these” Matthew 25:35-40 – those most effected in our society by the social injustices of our modern world. The Episcopal Migration Ministries is one such organization….
REFUGEE & IMMIGRANT RESETTLEMENT
Episcopal Migration Ministries is the refugee resettlement ministry of The Episcopal Church, proudly carrying on a century-old legacy of Episcopal ministries that welcome immigrants and refugees.
People do not become refugees by choice. Refugees are children, women, and men forced to flee their homes on account of persecution, war, and violence. When refugees cannot return home nor integrate into the first country that provides them safety, they may be eligible for resettlement to a third country. Less than ½ of 1% of the world’s refugees will ever be resettled.
“For His sake, I am but one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. What I can do, I ought to do. What I ought to do, by the grace of God, I will do. Lord, what will you have me do?” – DOK Motto: Attributed to Edward Everett Hale.
