How can we ready ourselves to share mutually with those seeking refuge in Canada and across the globe?
This year's theme for reflection ahead of World Refugee Day on June 20th, is "Ready to Share".
1 Timothy 6:18-19 provided instruction to the early church, as they sought to be a gathering that was wholly counter-cultural, as all shared from the same table. This instruction included a commitment to doing good, being generous, and ready to share. Having affirmed in past campaigns that we co-belong to one another, and can remain in step with what God is already doing, this year we are focusing on how we, as followers of Jesus, can embody a readiness to share all the measure of resource we steward. Our lives are enriched by the people we develop relationship with who bring the gift of different perspectives and experiences. Healthy frameworks for action are propelled by this readiness to share and informed by a philosophy of co-belonging.
