This Sunday – September 13, 2015 We Welcome Refugees are inviting all churches and Christian Leaders to take a moment in your services and gatherings to discuss the incredible humanitarian tragedy and faced by largely Syrian Refugees.
This is the church's moment in history.
“We Welcome Refugees” harnesses the capacity of the church’s diverse social network in order to open doors to the unfathomable number of refugees who are now showing up at our doors.
The world is facing the worst refugee crisis since WWII. There are 7.6 million Syrians who are displaced in their own country and 3.8 million who have sough refuge in other countries. There is not relief for this crisis in sight. In fact, the data and situation suggest things will become worse. These families are moving not simply better their lives, but literally save their lives.
There is a place for your church, your people, your community, to have a practical, tangible, real way to welcome in the stranger in Christ’s name, a place hosted by World Relief, The Justice Conference, and Ann Voskamp (with more partners to be added soon).
We’ve seen the heart-stopping photographs. And we know that the Love of God, for such a time as now, will not be stopped. And the Church, moved to action, can be God’s answer to untold prayers, to bring grace and justice and redemption in a situation that can seem impossible.
