Here’s how it works:
Every day for 40 days, we ask that you would read one short Scripture passage that relates to God’s heart for immigrants in some way. Some verses deal with having respect for the law; others relate to the way God says immigrants should be incorporated into a society. We provide you with a bookmark that lists the references to these 40 passages. We don’t analyze the passages for you or tell you how we think they should be interpreted – all we do is direct you to the verses and ask that you commit to reading them, praying about them, and reflecting on them.
There are a few ways to participate. The most common way to participate will be to simply commit to reading the 40 verses and praying/reflecting. If you would like to do that, please simply fill out the “Challenge Participant” form at the bottom of this page. You are certainly invited to participate in groups – perhaps you and a friend would like to read through these Scriptures together! All interested participants can sign up quickly and painlessly by filling out the form. Once you fill out the form, you will receive a link to a PDF of the bookmark that lists the Scripture verses we’ll be asking you to read. You can print them off yourself for free if you want, or you can order durable card stock bookmarks for 55¢ each (the order form will also be sent to you once you sign up for the challenge).
Some people may wish to take a more active role in this challenge; another way you are welcome to participate is by volunteering to help organize and mobilize people in your community to participate in the challenge. If you would like to help spread the word about this challenge by being a leader on your campus, church, or community and organizing groups of people who want to participate in the challenge, click here to fill out the “Organizer Toolkit Request Form.” We will be in touch with you soon and send you detailed resources and instructions for mobilizing others to participate in the challenge.
