Church officials testify in support of immigration reform

Key representatives of the Episcopal Church testified today before the Senate Judiciary Committee at a hearing today on immigration reform. Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations Director Alexander Baumgarten and Katie Conway, Immigration and Refugee Policy Analyst, submitted testimony to the committee, chaired by Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont. An excerpt from their testimony:

Non Possessive Love

He saw that all things were good, and He did not enjoy them. He saw that all things were beautiful, and he did not want them. His love is not like ours. His love is non possessive. His love is pure because it needs nothing.
