Over 100 people gathered this past weekend in Wichita, Kansas, for a two-day workshop on immigration issues titled “Citizens of God’s Kingdom.” Hope Mennonite Church hosted the event on March 1-2, 2013, with planning and logistical support from the MC USA Western District Conference Reference Council.
Staff from MCC U.S. and MC USA led discussions around various topics, including: the theology of immigration, our own immigration stories, root causes, immigration history and law, problems and profits of immigration enforcement, and Christian advocacy. Those in attendance also heard stories from recent migrants in the Newton-Wichita community, helping them to think about what it means to truly be Citizens of God’s Kingdom.
