People are afraid. I understand. Terrorist attacks in Paris and now in California make us feel vulnerable. So we feel like building walls between ourselves and people who are different from us. But is it possible that immigration, even from the Middle East, isn’t something to be afraid of, but an opportunity? We have not yet gone out and brought the gospel to all people. So is God bringing the nations to us? In this season when we remember that Christ was born to bring us peace with God, may his peace grant us to not act on our fears but to open our hands and hearts to all people.
