Welcome - Your Turn 1-6-16

 Today, for the first time since World War II, there are more than 50 million refugees in the world. Immigration enforcement policies have forcibly separated families, and refugees flee war and violence in Syria in overwhelming numbers. 

Join Gloria Dei in celebrating Refugee Sunday on January 10, 2016.

Special texts for the day:
Leviticus 19:33-34
Romans 12:9-21
Matthew 10:40-42
