In this winter weekend we hope to draw out the experience of the ‘resident alien’ – someone who belongs yet doesn’t belong to wherever they find themselves. Refugees are an obvious case but our experience today is that populations are increasingly mixed and lots of people have multiple identities.
How do we help people understand this, live with each other and create a harmonious existence? Using stories drawn from the Bible and from everyday life we will look at who we are and whose we are: God’s children and therefore siblings in God with heaven as our common home.
