The ability to ACT

Lynne Hybels has an excellent piece in The Washington Post about responding to the migrant crisis in Europe.

There are several agencies you could donate to as well as action in prayer and action in going.

Friends, there are things TO DO. A call to some action is necessary. We need to see the need, the crisis, and be able to respond in some way as we face the worst refugee crisis since World War II.

  1. As one working in Turkey on the front line of this crisis, I put this together for when people have been lately asking me what practical ways they can help:

    White house petition for allowing more Syrian refugees into the states:
