Today’s episode begins our Hometown Lenten series. We invite you to journey with us through the Stations of the Cross. We will release written and audio reflections on each station of the cross weekly on Wednesdays, Ash Wednesday through April 1, and then shift to a daily release through Good Friday. We will release a digital download booklet, Reflections on Stations of the Cross, on March 12. To receive the daily written reflections and request a copy of the booklet, visit episcopalmigrationministries.org/stations20

Our reflection authors represent a wide variety of experiences and backgrounds; each offers a poignant reflection on a Station and its relevance to migration and what it means to welcome the stranger as we would welcome Christ. Each reflection calls us back to our essential identity as beloved children of God and asks us to prayerfully reflect on the meaning of the Cross in a world being transformed by migration. Today we open with a reflection from EMM’s Allison Duvall, Manager for Church Relations and Engagement. In this role, she supports EMM’s refugee resettlement affiliates and educates, empowers, and inspires local congregations, organizations, and individuals to discern and live into the ministries of welcome to which they are uniquely called.
