Aperture: Third Wednesdays returns this fall with guest speaker Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove.
Our topic for the evening will be “The Theology of Sanctuary.” With immigration enforcement up over 200% this year, our immigrant neighbors feel under attack. What does it mean for the church to love our neighbors as ourselves when they are living in the shadows and facing deportation orders? Join Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove to talk about the School for Conversion’s experience offering sanctuary to a pastor facing deportation.

Jonathan directs the School for Conversion, a nonprofit that has grown out of the life of Rutba House to pursue beloved community.
