Rethink Church - Immigration

Download: QuickTime (MP4) | Windows Media (WMV)

Immigration issues are a hot topic in today’s political landscape, yet people of faith often steer clear of this subject.

Rethink Church has developed a package to help your community explore immigration issues with a relevant, thought-provoking approach.

What it includes

A 12-minute video story of Jasmine – a 17-year old who was left alone in the U.S. after her parents deported – personalizes an often-dehumanized issue to see how one group of United Methodists responded.

A guide to conversation is included, which helps you plan for a dialogue session to follow a video screening. An invitation package provides graphic resources for you to extend the conversation to surrounding community.

Learn how to use the package

Jim Perdue (Desert Southwest Conference), Jan Snider (producer, United Methodist Communications) and Neelley Hicks (special projects manager – Rethink Church) hosted an online conversation to discuss how this package can be adapted to your setting. Download this archived webinar.
