The Walls (and Bridges) We Build with Rev. Ray Schellinger
September 26, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Eastern Baptist (Palmer) Theological Seminary alum, Ray Schellinger (’93) will share about the barriers that are going up in the US (and around the world) to prevent refugees and asylum seekers from finding places of safety and belonging. He will spotlight several examples of radical hospitality which have risen in stark contrast to the attitudes of rejection which abound in our culture.
Ray is the International Ministries global consultant for Immigrants and Refugees. He networks with IM colleagues and international partners that serve with refugees and displaced peoples, helping to strengthen their ministries, find needed resources and build capacity. Ray works to construct bridges between U.S. and P.R. churches and these partners, providing opportunities to serve some of the most vulnerable people in the world. In addition, Ray hosts several teams per year in international cross-cultural settings where they can learn about the struggles of migrants, the realities of global immigration and border policies.
