‘A Lutheran Framework for Addressing Immigration Issues’

Immigrants Among Us: A Lutheran Framework for Addressing Immigration Issues

The main goal of the study is to offer some biblical and confessional principles and guidelines to LCMS lay members, congregations, and church workers as they reflect — individually or corporately either as members of the church, or as citizens or residents of the nation — on their Christian responsibilities towards their immigrant neighbors.
