Immigrant Family Taking Refuge in Old Lyme Church Featured in ‘The New Yorker’ Story

The First Congregational Church of Old Lyme and the Rehman family of three from Pakistan that are currently living in the church’s basement were featured in a story titled No One Is Safer. No One Is Served in The New Yorker last week.

The Rev. Steven Jungkeit, senior minister of the church, describes the article in these words, “The story, written by reporter Dave Eggers, traces their lives from when Malik and Zahida [Rehman] first met in Pakistan, to their living in sanctuary in our church with their five-year-old daughter … It also provides a solid description of the theological framework that underlies our sanctuary efforts.”
