A World On The Move: A Public Conversation On Migration says
As images of people on the move fill our screens, what are the narratives that help us make sense of an increasingly mobile and globalized world? Migration is at the core of the sacred texts of many traditions: Adam and Eve must leave the garden of Eden; Abraham and Sarah venture out with nothing but a promise; Siddhārtha Gautama, the prince who becomes the Buddha, begins his path to enlightenment by traveling around his kingdom; Jesus begins his life as a refugee hiding from Herod; the prophet Mohamed’s return from exile to Mecca is traced back as one of the pillars of Islam.

Join Rev. Dr. David Vásquez-Levy, a nationally recognized speaker and advocate on immigration and President of Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley, California, for a conversation about the sustaining power of religious narratives that speak to our own stories of change—migrations across national or physical boundaries or beyond personal boundaries of belief and experience—and call us to action.
