I’ll be speaking at Hope Presbyterian Church in Richfield, MN, tomorrow morning. I’m taking Pastor Jean Pierre Gatera with me as the church asked me to share about the refugee church and Pastor Gatera spent 20 years of his life in Kakuma refugee camp – and many of those years as a refugee pastor. I can think of no better way to introduce them to the refugee church than to give them the privilege of listening to Pastor Gatera.
I spent today updating this 6 minute video that offers an overview of the global refugee crisis with the latest statistics along with a biblical perspective of forced displacement. It is always encouraging to hear how widely it is used by churches, agencies, networks and others internationally.
It is all part of trying to create space in the hearts and minds of others for refugees.
