Dialogues on the Global Refugee Crisis


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

Several opportunities for conversation and reflection will be provided for members and friends of Trinity Church to learn more about the global refugee crisis and how people of faith are responding with Christ-like love to the needs of their neighbors.

Adult Forum – Sundays at 9:00am in the Library

  • Nov. 17 – Sanctuary Denomination discussion. At its 2019 Churchwide Assembly, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America voted to become a “Sanctuary Denomination.” Group members will discuss together the implications of that decision.
  • Nov. 24 – Dialogues on The Refugee Crisis (continuing in 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.

The Way – Sundays at 11:45 am in the Library

  • Nov 17 & 24 – Dialogues on The Refugee Crisis (continuing in December). A second opportunity to join in dialogue around the global refugee crisis will be offered during this time frame using materials from Sparkhouse Publishers.
