The people we meet change our lives. Through hearing the stories and learning about the lives of others, we are transformed…
The Stranger is a new 45-minute documentary created to introduce Christians to the stories and lives of immigrants living in this country. Interviews with pastors, Christian leaders, and policy experts provide a biblically based context for the immigration challenges that face our country today. The film, commissioned by the Evangelical Immigration Table (www.evangelicalimmigrationtable.com), was produced by Emmy-award winning producer Linda Midgett.
“This may be the resource you’ve been looking for to help your church, school, small group, or friends think critically and compassionately about one of the most pressing issues of our day.”
