It’s a pivotal moment in our nation regarding immigration policy. I’m praying that all of us, but especially people of faith, will speak out. Jesus’ voice in Scripture whispers undeniably in my heart, "Love one another as I have loved you." It certainly wasn’t, "Love one another – but by golly, send those illegals back where they came from!" No, the love Jesus spoke of went far beyond the law and never came attached to any condition.
