Friends of Guatemala

Saturday, November 16, 2019 – 09:00am to 12:00pm

Easter Lutheran on the Hill, Eagan, MN

What does becoming a safe and welcoming church mean for us? How might we come alongside those who are vulnerable and looking for safety? These questions of faith should not be answered in a vacuum. We can start by listening to our partner congregations in Guatemala. They are our sisters and brothers in Christ, with whom we share a relationship. As we seek to gain a deeper understanding of how immigration issues impact them, we can apply that knowledge in the larger contexts of immigration, church, and sanctuary.
Rev. Karen Castillo (Pastor/president, Iglesia Luterana Agustina de Guatemala) share her perspective and insights via video. Tammy Walhof (Director, Lutheran Advocacy-MN) will help us process big migration questions, and begin a conversation about what this means for us. You are invited to join the conversation!

Hear about the 10 days the Easter Lutheran delegation spent with partners in Guatemala City and rural Maya Itza. Meet the 13-member Easter Lutheran delegation that recently returned from Guatemala. Hear about the ten days they spent with partners in Guatemala City and rural Maya Itza.

Everyone is welcome.
