About the Lecture
The invasion of Ukraine by Russia has led to the largest and fastest-growing refugee crisis in the world. Men, women, and children have faced torture, sexual assault, and execution. Yet in the midst of these horrors, we have seen an outpouring of compassion and hospitality on an unprecedented scale. Find out how the church has been involved and what Christians can do to support refugees right now.
