Hometown – Episcopal Migration Ministries

Hosted ByAllison Duvall and Kendall Martin

A Podcast from Episcopal Migration Ministries

The Hometown podcast features interviews with people resettled to the U.S. as refugees, history and background on refugee-producing countries, interviews with authors, and spiritual reflections from lay and clergy across the Church. In addition, in-between season episodes include advocacy and policy updates, webinar recordings, and opportunities to get involved in the ministry of welcome.

Station 6: A woman wipes the face of Jesus

Today’s reflection on Station 6 – A woman wipes the face of Jesus – comes from The Rev. Francisco García. A PhD student at Vanderbilt University, focusing on Theological Studies and Ethics, priest, and former community and labor organizer, he also serves as an Assistant Chaplain at St. Augustine’s Episcopal Chapel in Nashville. Prior to his doctoral studies, he served as an Episcopal school chaplain, and in leadership roles at two parishes — most recently as the Rector of Holy Faith Episcopal Church, a multiracial, multilingual congregation in Inglewood, California. Francisco convened and served as Co-Chair of the Sanctuary Task Force of the Diocese of Los Angeles, also known as L.A. Sacred Resistance, formed to implement a Resolution committing the Diocese to be a place of welcome, refuge, and sanctuary to members of the immigrant and refugee community, and all who are targets of hate.
