WIN | FILM TALK | All Saints: Film Screening | Refugee Week Saturday 23 June 2018 | 3-6pm

[Edited extract from public address]

Come share an inspiring true story of displacement, discomfort, faith and discovery. 

A film showing a pastor's first assignment is to close a church and sell the prime piece of land where it sits. He is challenged when the Church starts to welcome refugees from Burma.

The story gives focus to the experience of refugees (the Karen) in a new country and the challenge a faith community has in deciding which need takes priority.

Mark Htoo Saw, a relative of those featured will share reflections on the refugee experience and to relate themes of the story to experience in Australia. Come share an inspiring true story of displacement, discomfort, faith and discovery.

This is an opportunity for faith communities to come together in support of refugees at a time of need. We show through our actions that our varied traditions welcome and support the stranger in our midst.

Refugee Week is always held from Sunday to Saturday of the week which includes 20 June (World Refugee Day).
