Refugees (who cares?)
This overwhelming view was held by a number of Australians, seen on a social media post on Refugee Sunday (working in partnership with World Evangelical Alliance and Refugee Highway Partnership). The following pictures revealed the level of apathy towards migrants and refugees:
Instead, we look for solutions that point towards relief, focusing on the possibilities in facilitating their return to their own countries when safe to do so, and enabling them to relocate within the religion to be safe. As a last resort, we will advocate for them to be resettled in a different country - these being the most vulnerable individuals who have a very real threat to their lives, and who cannot relocate to other countries. We encourage you to not be consumed by the seemingly loud and dominating views on social media that act to fuel tension and hatred, as opposed to solutions. These comments only further convince us of the work that must be done in advocating for those who are in need. Let us continue to interceed over the displaced community, and loving the stranger.
