Bauman strangers at our door

bauman strangers at our door Refugees from the violence of wars and the brutality of famished lives have knocked on other peoples doors since the beginning of time.

Gordon Brown had one up in 10 Downing Street and James May wears a Keep Calm T-shirt on the telly - it is suddenly everywhere.

Does god desire all to be saved
