We’re excited to bring you a unique opportunity to engage the themes of Intervarsity Press’s new release Refuge Reimagined in conversation with the book’s authors. (You might just win a free book!) Join us for an online workshop on what the Bible says about kinship -especially as it relates to those who don’t look, act or sound like us.
Refuge Reimagined authors Mark (Regent College, Vancouver) & Luke (Australian National University, Canberra) Glanville will partner with James Grunau (Journey Home Community, Vancouver) to discuss with us

Offered Refuge:
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.

As part of this event, five free copies will be given away!

The deadline for signing up is on March 12th so that we can get preparatory reading material to participants in time.
