God Welcomes Foreigners

Isaiah 56:1-8 NRSV

These I will bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer; their burnt offerings and their sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house shall be called a house of prayer for all peoples.  Isaiah 56:7

When we remember those who are seeking refuge at borders around the world, our prayers should be encouraged by a vision that God will bring those refugees to places of joy, including houses of prayer.
