Refugee WeekFull Calendar

If you were forced to leave your home and could only take one bag, what would you take? What would it feel like to be on the run from your own country, in the hope of finding a safe place somewhere else? In this short drama, we meet a young girl and her family in an unknown land and discover how they came to be there, far away from home.

God is in the Boat
The island of Lesvos in Greece, 2016: refugees fleeing war and hardship are arriving in their thousands. In this film, we hear from some of the refugees, and from the volunteers who feel it is their humanitarian duty to help them. One - a pastor from Texas - says, "When something like this happens people say, well where is God? The answer is, well God is with the refugees; God is in the boat with those people."
