What do you see when you look at this photo? How can we re-imagine boundaries we create between people?
This photo shows refugee and German children together at INSPIRE, a fresh expression of church in downtown Chemnitz in eastern Germany. Although these children are not from the same place, they are the same. They are children.

How can we show hospitality to displaced people? Offer your creative suggestions in this discussion thread.
In his video interview, Aaron Limmo talks about how refugees and migrants just want to be treated as humans. This kind of language seems to rarely enter the conversation around the current refugee crisis. But shouldn't it be something that Christians think about?
- With Limmo's comments in mind, how should people of faith respond to the mass migration out of the Middle East?
- What are creative ways churches (all over the world) can express love and care to refugees in our communities and neighborhoods?
- What can we do for those refugees and migrants who are not near us?
