"They Are Us"
Our readings today are from Leviticus chapter 19, verse 34 and Matthew chapter 6, verse 12 from the Common English Bible.
Leviticus 19: 34
34 Any immigrant who lives with you must be treated as if they were one of your citizens. You must love them as yourself, because you were immigrants in the land of Egypt; I am the LORD your God.
Matthew 6: 12
12 Forgive us for the ways we have wronged you, just as we also forgive those who have wronged us.
