Immigration study resources ready

A new study guide, curriculum, and worship resources are now available for the Congregational Study/Action Issue (CSAI): “Immigration as a Moral Issue.”

The guide provides a range of resource materials for congregational and individual study. There is also a curriculum on immigration for a six-week adult education course as well as a worship resource supplement. Topics include: understanding the causes of migration, the history of immigration in the United States, the economics of immigration, security and enforcement, and building a theology of migrant justice. The guide is available at http://tinyurl.com/newstudyguide.

Additional resources, including congregational stories, news and updates, and interfaith and community partners can be found at www.uua.org/immigration.
