“Compassion should not be controversial.” – Bri Stensrud
Today, Bri Stensrud joins me At The Table to discuss the value of all human life and the task for churches and believers to welcome immigrants and refugees with love and grace. She takes us to the border and shares some of the accounts of the tremendous loss, fear, and struggles many refugees face as well as the unique opportunity to come alongside and guide them toward hope and compassion. This is a conversation often centered around a Parisian point, and today’s episode will move you toward the heart of God and an act of compassion.
Bri Stensrud is a human dignity advocate and the Director of Women of Welcome. Her passion is to equip the Church to engage more consistently and tangibly in holistic human dignity issues. Throughout her work in the pro-life movement, Bri continually faced questions from those concerned about immigrants and refugees. Understanding that many concerns were rooted in fear and misinformation, she started a journey to re-discover God’s heart for the sojourner. She holds a Masters of Biblical & Theological Studies from Dallas Theological Seminary and lives in Colorado Springs with her husband and two kids.
