Elizabethtown sermon chosen

Pastor Greg Davidson Laszakovitz had a sermon selected for a Sojourners collection called “El Camino,” or “the way,” described as “sermons on the way to a robust engagement with immigrant justice.” Laszakovitz’s sermon “Philoxenia vs. Xenophobia” was preached at Elizabethtown (Pennsylvania) Church of the Brethren.

“There are dozens and dozens of scriptures in our Bible that talk about the love of the stranger and how we are to treat people, even people who are different from us,” said an excerpt. “We know that these compassionate scriptures are rooted in the experience of God’s people because God’s people were often the foreigners and the outsiders themselves.”
