Welcoming the Stranger: A sermon from Pastor Kyle Ray

Welcoming the Stranger
A sermon from Pastor Kyle Ray

In a recent series at Kentwood Community Church (a Wesleyan congregation in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area) Pastor Kyle Ray addressed the concept from scripture of welcoming the stranger. Kentwood found this to be one of many examples of when our Christian beliefs “collide” with the culture around us. The sermon is a practical, wise, and balanced view of the issues and, more importantly, reminds us of a key refrain of the Wesleyan Immigrant Ministry: “Immigration is an issue, but immigrants are people.” He also concludes with a great gospel overview, which should motivate us to higher aims.
