There are more than 65.5 million displaced people in the world today. What was once a humanitarian issue has become a political issue, even in the church. As a nation, and as people of faith, we are divided over this issue.
Dialogues on the Refugee Crisis is a new study offered this fall at Centreville UMC. The study invites readers to look beyond the headlines and into the real experiences of displaced people to determine what a faith-filled response to this ongoing crisis might look like. One of the weeks of this study will also be spent listening to a guest speaker share his experience as a refugee.
In addition, we will put our study of this issue and our faith into action, with the class culminating in a hands-on project that will be determined by the class.
This class will be held on Wednesdays at both 10 AM and 7 PM. You pick the time that works for you. The first class begins on September 14 and the study concludes on November 2. You may participate in person or on zoom. Books are available at the church. The Retired Rev. Phillip Moschenrose will lead the class.
