Across the Wall

“But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he is our peace; in his flesh he has made both groups into one and has broken down the dividing wall, that is, the hostility between us.”  (Ephesians 2:13-14)

In February, a small group of folk from across Foothills Presbytery journeyed to the US-Mexican border region known as Frontera de Cristo.  They were ministers and lay people, women and men, young and old.  What they held in common was their willingness to journey to a place that political conversation and news coverage have portrayed as dangerous, violent, and troubled. They went because they wanted to see for themselves this border region of their own country and our neighbor to the south.  They went because they wanted to better understand the difficulties of life south of the border, difficulties that continue to make so many people risk life and limb to come to the United States, a country that seems not to want them.  They went because they had heard about the work being done in this border region to change lives for the better, to keep families together, to promote peace.

Natalie Schwartz, a member of Seneca Presbyterian Church, wrote the following reflections about finding Jesus “on both sides of the fence.”  If her words make your heart ache or make your spirit yearn to be part of this bridge-building work in our presbytery, give me a call.  Another group will make the trip in November – and they’d love for you to tag along.

In Christ,

Terri
