World Refugee Day
Observed around the world on June 20th, World Refugee Day (WRD) marks a key moment to acknowledge the tenacity of millions of refugees around the world and bring attention to obligations of the international community to respond to pressing global needs.
World Refugee Sunday, is held annually on the two Sundays failing on either side of WRD. Churches are encouraged to share stories of refugees around the world and explore the Biblical mandate to welcome the stranger.
The Refugee Highway Partnership, has provided resources on their website to equip churches as they engage in the topic of the world's displaced people. As well, the Canadian Foodgrains Bank has created a package designed to inform prayer and worship services.
CPJ encourages congregations to consider how World Refugee Sunday might help them corporately advocate for refugees and fulfill God's call to love our neighbour.
