Ross recently spoke about the biblical foundation for Welcoming the Refugee.
Many of us lack understanding of who refugees are and where they come from. There is great opportunity coming up to “get into the shoes” of a refugee and help us understand their plight and the process they go through to be resettled.
The documentary film Salam Neighbor will be screened at the Colleyville Studio Movie Grill on Monday, May 15th (7:30pm-8:45pm).
This film documents the experiences of two American filmmakers as they lived among 85,000 Syrians in Jordan's Za'atari refugee camp. These filmmakers were the first allowed by the UN to set up a tent inside a refugee camp, and they spent a month covering what the UN Refugee Agency calls “the world's most pressing humanitarian crisis.”
121 is excited to partner with Crossroads Church of Fort Worth to make the first 60 tickets available for 50% off! Regular price is $10 for this one-night, one-time screening.
How long is the film?
The full-length feature runs 75 minutes.
Is the film appropriate for young viewers?
Salam Neighbor is intended for all ages, although some sections are subtitled which can make it challenging for lower school audiences.
How can I get involved with refugees now?
There are two primary ways to get involved in the life of refugees in our area through 121’s partnership with World Relief.
- The first is by becoming a Family Friend to a refugee family. Your role would be to help them adjust to life in the U.S. and to share the love of Christ in practical ways.
- Another way to engage with refugees is to join a Good Neighbor Team. A GNT is made up of a few families that come together to create loving, mutually beneficial relationships with a refugee family through weekly visits and assisting them in the resettlement process.
