Abbey United Reformed Church, Romsey

Welcoming immigrants

I visited Wessex Synod with the Youth Exec and we all discussed the acceptance of minority groups within the church. It was recognised that the URC can be very welcoming, however there are still areas where we can improve. This was illustrated using the story of Paddington Bear, the well known traveller and immigrant. When Paddington turned up to the Brown household Mr Brown didn’t accept him in the begining. After getting to know Paddington, and understanding his background, he welcomed the bear into his family for who he was – not worrying that he was different from them.

Welcoming someone is not about changing them to be like us, but accepting them for who they already are.
