Calvin Theological Seminary invites you to the second Loving Your Neighbor Conference which will be held at Calvin Seminary from July 30th to August 1st, 2018. Conference Theme: According to Jesus, the first and greatest commandment is to love God, and the second commandment is to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” But what does loving your neighbor mean for us today especially with neighbors who arrive as a result of migration, immigration or as refugees? Each year, thousands of people arrive in the United States and Canada as refugees or immigrants. Some refugees are children who arrive as unaccompanied minors, having been separated from their families abroad as they fled violence or disaster. How does the Bible help us navigate in this time and place? We will ask, from a variety of perspectives, “What Does ‘Loving Your Migrant, Immigrant and Refugee Neighbor’ Mean Today?” We invite pastors, ministry leader, and lay members to attend this conference and to hear from a variety of speakers about their ministries and services to immigrants, migrants, and refugees.
