Wisdom from Evangelicals in Europe addressing the refugee crisis

What is the place of the Church and how can we respond to the influx of refugees with both wisdom and love? How can Christians be the hands and feet of Jesus to a wandering and disadvantaged people?  How can we effectively communicate the gospel in such circumstances?

These are questions the Forum of Christian Leaders attempt to answer in this Roundtable Discussion. They brought together evangelical leaders from various perspectives in order to address the challenges and opportunities posed by Europe’s refugee crisis. Perhaps we can learn something from them.
