Looking forward to World Refugee Day June 20, Episcopal Church Presiding Bishop and Primate Michael B. Curry issued the following statement: “Our work with and for refugees began when we began to follow Jesus, to follow His way and His teachings. It is because we are followers of Jesus, because we follow the way of love, because we follow the way of compassion, because we follow the way of human decency and kindness that we must be passionately committed to helping the refugees and displaced persons of this day. When World Refugee Day comes on June 20, I invite you and ask you – help the refugees of this day. Support Episcopal Migration Ministries.”
The Presiding Bishop’s video message can be found here.
