Welcoming the Stranger – Two Reflections

This service – presented by the Social Action Committee – features the reflections of two UU’s on their experiences volunteering with immigrants new to Maine.

Jane Makala, a member of the First Parish Yarmouth and an attorney with ILAP, shares a story of one special relationship and our own Tara Williams speaks about her family’s experience volunteering with Family Promise.

Even as the rhetoric around immigrants coming to this country continues to be extremely hostile, those of us who are choosing to welcome them to Maine are being rewarded in ways too numerous to mention.
