Throughout Scripture, we children of God are called to love sojourners in our midst and to treat them “as if they were one of your citizens and loving them as we do ourselves” (Lev. 19:33-34). The purpose of “Called to be Neighbors” is to heighten awareness of the plight of our Muslim immigrant neighbors and to shed light on how as United Methodists we can respond. With the recent bombings and shootings in Mosques in various parts of the world, we are called to do better. We are called to love one another.
