Responding to God’s Call
During the month of January, the Sunday Adult Forum is considering God’s call to care for immigrants and refugees in the ever-more complicated times in which we live. This Sunday, January 20, Holy Trinity welcomes special guest Ruben Castilla Herrera, a second generation Mexican-American born in Seguin, TX. He spent his childhood as a migrant farmworker in California, Oregon, and Washington. He graduated from Willamette University in Salem, OR and attended the Methodist Theological School in Delaware, OH. Herrera is a long-time organizer and activist fighting for justice, freedom, dignity and liberation for all people. He was founding member of several Latinx-related organizations including, most recently, the Columbus Sanctuary Collective (Colectivo Santuario de Columbus). The CSC is organized around Sanctuary as Resistance and the #AbolishICE movement. The faith-based strategy is to stop deportations and provide a unified resistance to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Please join us Sunday, January 20 at 9:35 am in the Conference Room to hear this interesting perspective.
