Do you need practical and attractive resources to distribute to refugees? Are you concerned about giving something that can be understood and appreciated? The Canadian Bible Society stands with you in helping to address the immediate needs as we see thousands of refugees coming to Canada.
This is our opportunity to be the hands and feet of Jesus at this time. Working with experts, Canadian Bible Society has two Scripture-based resources available for your distribution:
- “On the Road” is a booklet available in Arabic, Farsi, French, Chinese and English and written in collaboration with people who have experienced the harsh realities of life as a migrant.The selection of Bible passages, divided into categories like “Why Leave” and “A Difficult Journey,” are presented alongside real-life stories of migrants and refugees and biblical accounts of God’s people called to leave and endure life-transforming journeys.The seven chapters of “On the Road” correspond to different stages of the migrant journey and to finally settling in a new country. Each chapter contains several passages to read and think about, followed by thought-provoking questions.
- “Words that Changed the World” is based on the Beatitudes, offering the comfort and assurance that this beloved Bible passage has offered to readers for centuries. Available in bilingual versions (English/Arabic and French/Arabic).This attractive and colourful booklet can easily be handed to a refugee as a welcome gift. It was created in a style that would immediately be identifiable and accepted.
Both of these resources are being made available to churches and ministries that are welcoming refugees. Through the generosity of CBS donors, we are able to make the “On the Road” booklet available free of charge. The “Words that Changed the World” booklet is available in packs of 10 for $10. Shipping costs will be charged to customers.
