Local religious leaders took issue this weekend with President Trump’s recent executive order banning refugees and immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries.
Rev. Jack Gilpin of St. John’s Episcopal Church in New Milford said he alluded to the order during his Sunday morning sermon on the Beatitudes, the nine blessings in Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.
“Jesus affirmed...the responsibility of each of us to take care of those who can’t help themselves, who for one reason or another, because of the way the world works, have been hurt or lame or downtrodden,’ Gilpin said. That is where God is to be found, with them.”
Speaking to the Soul: Alleluia! Alleluia!
