Talking God's Justice

Riverside Church will hold a forum on immigration called "Talking God's Justice" on Sunday, March 15. The event will take place at 1:00 PM in MLK room 430 of the church, which is located at 490 Riverside Drive:
Our Biblical imperative is clear. We are called to action on behalf of the "foreigner living in our land." Many Riversiders have already answered that call through personal visits, educational pew cards, political advocacy and prayer. What is God calling you to do?

Sponsored by Global Justice and Peace Ministry. Speakers include following immigration organizations;

Carol Fouke-Mpoyo - Sojourners Ministry
Juan Carlos Ruiz - New Sanctuary Coalition - NYC
Ms. Janis Rosheuvel - Families for Freedom
Rev. Richard Witt - Rural and Migrant Ministries

Finally, Rev. Bob Coleman, Susan Wersan and Joya Colon will lead us from "Talking" God's Justice to "Walking" God's Justice with opportunities for ministry, advocacy and shaping legislative policy.
Light refreshments will be served.
