The Global Refugee Crisis “With more than 65.5 million people displaced in the world today, no one can dispute that we are in the midst of a refugee crisis.” – Brianne Casey
This series began in November and will continue through December. In a conversational format using materials prepared by Sparkhouse Publishers, including a participant guide and weekly videos, participants will learn more about the global refugee crisis, including the history of the church’s response to refugees, how international policy affects the ongoing refugee crisis, the critical role resettlement agencies play, how race affects the crisis, and how together we can seek a Christ-like response to the refugee crisis.
Each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. There will be a discussion group meeting to talk about the following chapter titles given in the book and video
The Story We Live In
A People Without A Place
A Global Perspective
A Network of Care
Facing Our History
Looking For A Home
Where Do We Go From Here?
Both the 9:00 a.m. and the 11:45 a.m. are working their way through these topics independently at their own pace so the one class is not interchangeable with another. It is hoped that if one starts with the 9:00 a.m. class, one continues with them through the whole study and the same is for the 11:45 a.m. group.
