In ancient times, there was a maniacal man ruling the country. Afraid that the people would rise up and challenge his rule, he ordered families to be terrorized. One family fled. After traveling countless miles, the family ended up in a place of safety. The country they left further descended into chaos.

 

In present times, here was a maniacal man ruling the country. Afraid that the people would rise up and challenge his rule, he ordered families to be terrorized. One family fled.

These two stories are no different. The first is a description of the flight of the family of Jesus to escape the wrath of King Herod. The second is a description of families that are currently fleeing to escape the wrath of the Trump administration. The similarities are stunning.

 

In recent weeks, Canadians have welcomed US refugees fleeing persecution at their borders. Often traveling through deep snow, refugees are graciously met with coats, warm spaces and food. Under Trump, the asylum seekers feel like their lives are on the line. With the rhetoric and actions consistently coming from the White House, who could blame them?

 

God is with those who flee.

 

God damn those who do nothing to help.

 

Amen.
