Unavoidable Global Realities: Refugees

March 7, 2013

Without a home, without a country: the plight of a refugee. Did you know?*

Some of the world’s refugees are living in our own backyard, yet many of us do not even know them. Rev. Nicholas Granitsas (M.Div. ’74), long-time pastor of First Congregational Church of Revere, has been serving among the refugee and immigrant community in Revere, MA, for nearly four decades. His vision is to reach the urban, transitional communities of that region, particularly working among the first- and second-generation immigrant communities. Join us for “Unavoidable Global Realities: Refugees” and hear Rev. Granitsas share practical examples of how we can address this global reality on a local and personal level. Find out more.
