January 16, 2018 – Faith & Society: The Trust Act, Orlando
Season 11, Episode 3
In our current political climate, many people who are immigrants to the United States feel threatened! On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll talk about faith, concerns of the immigrant community, and the Trust Act in Orlando.The poem is entitled, “New Colossus.” It is the famed poem from Emma Lazarus, and the last lines have become part of the American vision, it reads:
“From her beacon-hand Glows world-wide welcome… cries she, With silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore. Send these, the homeless, tempest-tossed to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
But, is that the America we live in today? Are we a place of welcome for those who seek refuge and a better life? We have some friends with us today who will help us explore all of this. A fear-filled immigrant community and the Trust Act of Orlando – that’s coming up in just a moment on Friends Talking Faith.
