A Christian Response to the Refugee Crisis

Last autumn, Trinity hosted a well-attended symposium to consider a Christian response to the European immigration and refugee crisis, which featured three lectures from Trinity College and Bristol Baptist College faculty members. The audio from those lectures is now available below, for those who would like to hear it, or to share with friends:

0:00-24:33  Rev Dr Knut Heim talks about the attitudes towards foreigners in the Bible.

24:33-47:33  Rev Dr Helen Paynter reflects on the Old Testament idea of Jubilee in light of the refugee crisis.

47:33-end  Rev Dr Jon Coutts discusses how we answer the question ‘Who is my neighbour?’
