SUNNYBANK SOCIAL JUSTICE COMMUNITY Refugee and Migrant Sunday - 28th August 2016
Refugee and Migrant Sunday is a celebration of the dignity of people who are refugees and migrants and the contribution they have made to life in Australia. Around 60 million people across the world are now displaced, more than at any time since the World Wars. Torn from their homelands, pushed out of their communities and over borders by the viciousness and violence of war, conflict, persecution and poverty. As a nation we must rise above the slogans and politicking, particularly those surrounding the issues on Manus and Nauru, and ask much more serious questions of ourselves. How are we to respond to the suffering of the world? Turn our backs in isolation – or embrace it in all its messiness and seek collective ways forward?
Pope Francis has stated: 'Welcoming others means welcoming God in person!' We are also urged to consider taking some simple practical actions to assist some of the people in our local communities who are most in need of support. The next community meeting will be held in the Activities Room upstairs in Paloma on Thursday 1st September commencing at 7.00pm. All are welcome to the discussion.
