Seeking Refuge gives participants a small glimpse into the lives of refugees. Of course,the stories of refugees are as varied and individual as the refugees themselves. While it is impossible to explore even a small portion of individual refugees’ experiences, it is important for Christians to gain a greater understanding of the refugee crisis in today’s world and discover what our faith-based response to this social issue needs to be. The goal of this fact-based refugee simulation is to give participants an opportunity
• to develop a greater understanding about the issues refugees face and the extent of the refugee crisis in the world today,
• to learn what the Bible teaches about our response to refugees,
• to cultivate greater empathy for refugees and internally displaced persons, and
• to explore how we go from knowledge about an issue to engaging in an issue to make a difference for the cause of Christ.
