A Theological Appeal for Defending the Refugee

Christian Aid is the relief and development agency of 41 Protestant and Orthodox churches in the UK and Ireland.

This short video is an advertisement requesting support for Christian Aid and its mission. In that appeal, though, we can see a theological perspective on the church’s role in fighting for justice and offering compassion. These are values that align directly with the focus of our class.

How can we promote this theological perspective in our own congregation? We will discuss this issue as we look at the story of the the refugee journey of Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus to Egypt and their failed return to Judea, leaving them finally in Galilee.

We would love to have you join us.
