Mark your calendars — June 20 is World Refugee Day! This day provides us an opportunity to remember the growing worldwide refugee crisis and to celebrate the gift that refugees are to our communities. CRC congregations have a strong tradition of extending welcome to refugees fleeing violence and oppression and it continues today with congregations walking alongside refugee families from Syria, Myanmar, the Congo, and beyond. We have seen the face of God in refugees and have been forever changed. Throughout this newsletter, you will find ways to both remember and celebrate refugees this month and beyond. Be sure to find the World Refugee Toolkit at the bottom for ideas of how congregations, families, and individuals can recognize this day!
