There will be two sessions:

  2. Sundays at 8:00 pm ET … 5:00 pm PT – first session begins September 10th

The chosen book is: Trails of Hope and Terror by Miguel de la Torre

     Orbis link: http://www.orbisbooks.com/trails-of-hope-and-terror.html

Each of seven sections (Borders, Economics, Myths, Family Values, the Politics of Fear, Christian Perspectives, Ethical Responses) opens with an examination of an issue and then includes a story or testimony by an undocumented immigrant, a story by someone who works with the undocumented, and a poem, prayer, or a song that expresses the hope and the terror involved in crossing the border. This combination of analysis, story, and artistic expression opens up the complexities of immigration. Cost is $12 at the Orbis site (link above).
