Jericho Road: (Presbyterian social services) is developing a plan for helping refugees from Syria: We are called by God to love those who have been displaced from their homes and provide them with practical care. Deuteronomy 10:17-19 says “For the Lord your God is the God of gods and the Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God who does not show partiality, nor take a bribe. He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the stranger by giving him food and clothing. So show love for the stranger, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.”
Jericho Road has been very encouraged by the number of people and congregations who have been in touch to ask what we as a denomination can do to support the refugees from Syria who will be resettled in Australia over the coming weeks and months.
We are at present working on a plan that should see us able to provide care in Jesus name, to the refugees coming from Syria and others, in a large number of ways. Some of these Jericho Road will implement and for others we will work with existing providers of services. We will provide more details about each one as they become available.
