Hometown is a podcast from Episcopal Migration Ministries and is part of the Good Book Club. This week’s Good Book Club scripture readings: Luke 18:18-Luke 22:46

On this week’s episode, we reflect on scripture, discuss the history of Afghanistan and the contributing factors that have caused Afghans to resettle in the United States, and interview Abdul Saboor. Abdul came to the United States from his native country of Afghanistan in 2014 through the SIV program.

Information about Afghanistan is largely from the Center for Applied Linguistics Backgrounder on Afghans and PBS NewHour HistoricalTimeline on
Afghanistan.
