The Refugee Question, and How We’re Talking About It

Thanks, Dan Franklin, for your excellent insights not only on the Syrian refugees, but also on the tone of the debate among believers. God, help us to be compassionate, understanding, reasonable, wise and biblical all at the same time. There are important points made on all sides of the issue, and while it's okay to have strong opinions, it's not okay to be dismissive and superior and fail to understand why there are good people who think differently than we do. This Christmas season, let's join in our gratitude to God for all He has given us in Christ and as a nation, and recognize that to whom much is given, much will be expected.


Here's a brief (probably not brief enough) video with both my take on the refugee question and also my take on how we are talking about the refugee question.
