Abstract
The Haitian church of today is facing a tactical and dangerous situation. It is confronted at every turn by the societal pressures to conform to socio-economic interests; and in the face of its duty to lead and serve those under its guidance, its leadership must prayerfully choose its course. In its desire to respond to these situations, the Haitian church has not only adapted its manner of addressing its congregation but is consistently searching for ways to bring its beliefs in line with its obligation to serve. Present Donald Trump’s decision to end Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for approximately 59,000 Haitians, 200,000 Salvadorians and 2,500 Nicaraguans augments the difficulties Haitian people have faced since its liberation in 1804. This dissertation calls upon the Haitian people and its government to recognize the import of this decision and calls upon it to work hard to correct its internal issues. It also calls upon the United States and other external sources to allow Haiti to self-govern itself, and to treat Haitians and those of African descent with the same respect that it treats those of fairer skin. It calls upon us, as members of global society, to treat and love our foreign brothers and sisters as we love ourselves.
