Lessons from Utica by Daniel Horan

Lessons from Utica, a small city that welcomed and was transformed by refugees

Jun 15, 2022

by Daniel P. Horan, a Utica native.

The last paragraph:

Utica is unquestionably better off because of the thousands of refugees and their families that have resettled there, and as Hartman's book makes clear in their own words, so are they. Let us not forget that Jesus admonished his followers to always welcome the refugee because, as he said, "I was a stranger, and you welcomed me in" (Matt 25:35). May each of our American cities strive to become, as Utica has intentionally sought to be, "a city of refugees."
