‘The Stranger’ Documentary Exploring Biblical Response to Immigration to Screen in Santa Barbara

Source: Diane Martinez for Immigrant Hope Santa Barbara

At 7 p.m. this Friday, July 11, Shoreline Community Church and Immigrant Hope Santa Barbara will host a free screening of The Stranger, a documentary film that highlights the biblical call to welcome the stranger and explore immigration reform from a distinctly Christian perspective.

The event will be held at Shoreline Community Church, 935 San Andres St. in Santa Barbara.

The screening takes place at a key moment, as attention focuses on unaccompanied migrant children who have entered the United States.

The local screening is among hundreds of local screenings across the country this month. Already, nearly 1,700 screenings are scheduled in 42 states.

The film highlights the moral imperatives for reform, including the immense human costs our current system exacts on our churches, our families and our communities. A trailer of the film is available by clicking here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
