Making Family at the Intersection of Scripture and Global Politics.
Drawing on their respective expertise in Old Testament studies and international relations, brothers Mark Glanville (Canada) and Luke Glanville (Australia) will lead us in exploring a new approach to compassion for displaced people: a biblical ethic of kinship.
In this workshop context, Mark Glanville will put a biblical ethic of kinship to work on the issue of forced displacement. Via close examination of a biblical text, we will see how God’s people are consistently called to extend kinship—a mutual responsibility and solidarity—to those who are marginalized and without a home.
Luke Glanville will explore how nations have both an opportunity and a responsibility to replace dispositions of fear and antagonism toward refugees with dispositions of trust and welcome. Luke will equip us to answer the “but what about . . .” questions that so often come our way!
This workshop coincides with the launch of the Glanville’s new book published by Intervarsity Press.
