LENTEN VIRTUAL BORDERLANDS EXPERIENCE

The Lenten Virtual Borderlands Experience (VBE) series is designed to expose participants to the border crossing experiences of immigrants, including their perilous journey towards the border, their interaction with detention centers, and the work of churches and other organizations that support them.  This is an opportunity during this COVID time to participate in a Lenten journey that brings you face to face with the injustices experienced by individuals and families who are seeking refuge as they attempt to enter the US with hope for a better life. This five-week Lenten VBE series can be done at home alone, with your family, or as part of a congregational study group.

Our presenters include individuals involved in immigration ministry and advocacy, as well as the immigrants themselves who have personally experienced the impact and trauma of our national immigration policies.

As we walk with Jesus this Lent, we invite you to walk with, and benefit from the impactful stories as told by our brothers and sisters who remind us that we are all migratory sojourners in one form or another.

There is no fee for this Lenten series which will take place on Thursdays from 7 to 8:30 PM EDT:
March 24
March 31
April 7
