Today, let’s meditate on Colossians 3:11. Read through this verse slowly, letting our imaginations wander through how the call realistically applies to our present circumstances:

 Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. Remember those who are in prison, as though you were in prison with them; those who are being tortured, as though you yourselves were being tortured.

Flight to Egypt by Fritz Eichenberg

Colossians 3:11 is an invitation to say “yes” to empathy by imagining ourselves experiencing the loneliness, fear, and suffering of those fleeing for safety or trapped in ICE detentions.

Today’s action idea is to find a visitation program near you to meet with people being detained by ICE. For those incarcerated, feeling forgotten can lead to despair. You can be a personal expression of encouragement and hope!
