my misgivings are that PCUSA is highly political, likely accepting government subsidies for refugees (link) on some important level; PCUSA beliefs would be shocking and offensive to incoming refugees.
notice gov agency logos near the bottom of this page:https://www.worldrelief.org/
after the honeymoon period, this might cause these folks to have serious family problems in future, as families divide over what to accept and not accept. such problems are rampant here! if gov subsidies are accepted, compliance with gov mandates will be enforced.
i agree with Robert that immigration may not be the best way to aid.
i prefer to allow this new administration to have the opp to come up with better ideas.
it doesn't make sense that there is not more than one way to respond, and there may be better ways.
Robert shared an example of how trump is (already) working on supporting safe zones in cooperation with other countries.
this topic, as presented on this forum, is steeped in anti-trump politics (this thread is in the politics thread, the OP is about over riding trump.) that's as political as it gets.
you seem very happy with PCUSA, that's fine. it's wonderful to have a church family that fits so well. most folks do not come to this particular forum to be recruited to PCUSA politics, or other, whether openly, or by stealth.
if you aren't familiar with PCUSA Disaster Assistance, i hope the link will be of help to you and your church family.
i believe you when you say your church does not speak politics specifically from the pulpit.
they are politically-savvy enough to know to keep it elsewhere.
you enjoy politics so much, you probably wouldn't be satisfied with a truly a-political church (?)
(something to consider, no need to respond.)
(i imagine) appleman's experience is just as he describes, these refugees would have much in common with CM's, not so much culture shock.
i am sure at least part of your heart is in the right place. politics causes problems.
is it possible to have both? great big question.
Robert mentioned MCC:https://mcc.org/
i do not know if/how they vary from PCUSA .. but, it's another resource.
