Ep. 12 Embracing the ‘Other’: Faith, Justice and Immigration in America

Welcome to Jesus, Justice, and Mercy, Episode 12!

In this thought-provoking episode, Kristen dives into the concept of ‘othering’ and its profound impact on society, particularly in the context of US history and immigration policies. 

From exploring the roots of xenophobia to challenging fear-based narratives, we examine how these dynamics shape our perceptions and interactions with others. 

Join us as we not only navigate through history, statistics, and personal reflections to uncover the complexities of identity, power, and reconciliation in our pursuit of a more just and compassionate world through our lens of faith. Don’t miss out on this insightful exploration of faith, justice, and the human experience.
