Stranger God: Encountering God in Refugees and Migrants

With millions of displaced refugees and migrants in our world, and many at our doorstep, what is our faith response? Scripture reveals that the best way to encounter the living God is to engage with strangers. How can we as individuals and as the Church do that in a dangerous world?

Sr. Marilyn Lacey, R.S.M., has spent her life working with displaced peoples. As the founder of Mercy Beyond Borders, she currently works with women in South Sudan and Haiti. In 2001 she was personally honored by the Dalai Lama as an "unsung hero of compassion." Her spiritual memoir, This Flowing Toward Me: A Story of God Arriving in Strangers, was published by Ave Maria Press in 2009.
