Crisis on Our Doorsteps: Immigrant Children and the Cry for Help

The First Unitarian Church of San Jose has a history of putting our children and youth at the center of our mission to “make Love visible ... and to create one sacred family.” Are the young unaccompanied, undocumented children from Central America who have crossed the United States’ southern border in record numbers this summer “our children,” too? How do we understand the larger context for this crisis, and how are we called to respond? Come hear how we can join Unitarian Universalists and other faith traditions to put our faith into action.
Worship Leader: the Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Worship Associate: Mary Martin

Crisis en Nuestras Puertas: Los Hijos de los Inmigrantes y el Grito de Ayuda

La primera iglesia Unitaria de San José tiene una historia de poner a nuestros niños y jóvenes en el centro de nuestra misión de “hacer visible el amor... y crear una familia sagrada.” ¿Son los niños no acompañados, indocumentados de Centroamérica que han cruzado el límite sur de los Estados Unidos en cifras récord este verano “nuestros hijos”, también? ¿Cómo entendemos el contexto más amplio de esta crisis, y cómo somos llamamos para responder? Ven a escuchar cómo los Unitarios Universalistas y otras tradiciones de fe podemos participar para poner nuestra fe en acción.
Dirige: la Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Asociada de Culto: Mary Martin
