Migration

Author: Teresa Burnett-Cole  /  Categories: Culture  / 

Migration is a constant in today's world.  Millions of people are on the move today as refugees, immigrants, and asylum seekers.*  While there have always been restless souls, most people move to seek a better or safer life.  The instability in many countries caused by war, environmental disasters, and politics has caused a tsunami of migration.  In Micah 4:1-5, Micah reminds us that wars will end, swords will be beaten into plough shares, spears will be made into pruning hooks, and in completing that famous passage, people will be safe in their own homes.  Can you imagine the change that living out this Scripture would bring about?
