Event Description:

“Faith on the Move: Stories of Migration in Faith Traditions”
Rev. Dr. David Vasquez-Levy, President of Pacific School of Religion

Migration is at the core of many of our sacred stories. Abraham and Sarah venture out with nothing but a promise; Jesus begins his life as a refugee hiding from Herod; the Hajj re-enacts the Prophet Muhammad’s journey to Mecca; and the path to enlightenment for Prince Siddharta begins with a journey of discovery throughout his kingdom.  Part of the sustaining power of these religious narratives is drawn from the fact that they speak profoundly to our own stories of change—migrations across national or physical boundaries or beyond personal boundaries of belief and experience. Can these sacred scriptures provide a more life giving way to guide our conversation about immigration and our engagement with a world on the move?

Join Rev. Dr. David Vasquez-Levy for a special lecture on Sunday, February 24 at 5:00 pm in the Louise Roberts Room.  (Claremont United Church of Christ, 233 W Harrison Ave)
