We’re winding up a week of Vacation Bible School here at church, and it’s impossible to watch the healthy, energetic, and secure children dropped off  by parents and grandparents each morning and not think of the thousands of children compromised in every way by the policies at our borders.  It’s apparent from our blogs that may of us are thinking about and praying for those same children, as well as those in our churches and in a Thai hospital.

Maren writes “A poem not intended to be about immigration” in Gift in Open Hands.

Michelle writes in Quantum Theology about her real lawn as a metaphor for how we might treat people at our borders.

Thinking about the Parable of the Good Samaritan, Mary asks three questions in Sicut Locust.

A mushroom metaphor for community comes to us from Charlene, writing in Musings for a Beautiful Day.

And, not finally, since I know many others have been writing on today’s topic, Rosa adds a small parable of joy about feline creatures and about welcome, in Las Puertas Abiertas de Par en Par.
