“They are the ones who know what they need.”
We are thankful for the stories this week of those who are participating with God and with their communities to extend hospitality, friendship, and help to our global and near neighbours.
In discerning how God might be prompting you to respond, may you consider the starting point as your own perspective and posture? Today’s interview with Aynsley Persad gives a chance to reflect more deeply on how, in every effort, we can recognize the resource, leadership, and gifting of those seeking refuge. We can walk in step with their hopes and plans for the future, expecting to be changed in our own journey with Jesus.
“How can we change refugees from being viewed as passive objects of pity to being viewed as people who have power, leadership, and good ideas. How can they be active agents in their own change and future life?”-Aynsley Persad
As you consider how God may be prompting you to participate with Him, we we hope this interview will help guide each of our heart postures in engaging with near and global neighbours.
