‘Who do you say that I am?’

‘Whatever else may happen, the refugee remains, asking the disarming question: 'who do you say that I am?' - Bishop Trevor Willmott

Knowing people’s story can transform how we engage with them. The theological imperative to welcome strangers and to also love those who are already our neighbours appears to be generating tension and headlines today. What should our response be? How can we move from labels to names?

Our theology paper From fear to safety attempts to provide the framework to answer these questions. If you have never come across the term hat·tê·ḇāh, this is a great opportunity to learn all about the theology behind our work with child refugees.
