Justice Ministry Group Hosts “Immigration through a Christian Lens”
Highland’s Justice Ministry Group will host an evening called “Immigration through a Christian Lens” on Thursday, April 24, 6:30 p.m., at Highland Baptist Church (1101 Cherokee Road, Louisville, KY 40204) in Fellowship Hall, consisting of a viewing of the documentary Documented, followed by a panel discussion of local Christian theologians about the complex issues of immigration and faith.
After the screening, attendees will be joined by Jose Antonio Vargas—the Pulitzer-prize winning journalist who “came out” as undocumented in an article for New York Times Magazine and has since been on every major news network in the country. The film chronicles his story, attempting to connect it to the stories of other immigrants and the larger national issue.
Vargas will moderate a panel consisting of local theologians :
Dr. Rev. Lewis Brogdon, Director of Black Church Studies Program at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
Rev. Carlos Malave, Executive Director of Christian Churches Together
Rev. Elizabeth Kaznak, Executive Director of Kentucky Refugee Ministries
These individuals have been impacted by the immigration laws of the United States, seeking to address how the gospel impacts our Christian view of immigrants and how their Christian faith calls for immigration reform.
