What is this life for?

Passage: Genesis 12:1-20

This week we began a new series focusing on People on the Move. Pastor Renee began with the first appearance of Abram in Genesis 12, when he is asked to leave his home and move to Canaan, then has to leave Canaan to seek relief from a famine in Egypt. How do we respond to this ancient story of border-crossing? How do we respond to those crossing borders today? How have we been blessed by people who have moved into our lives?
