Semester has started and suddenly it seems to be a new situation in Europe, with people walking on motorways, crossing boarders without registration  – and with this a waking up to a new reality. Hundreds of refugees at Malmö station arriving and lots of people welcoming. We should though remember that in Lebanon and Turkey there are millions of refugees in camps and only very few come to Europe. One person arrives in Europe this year on 1000 inhabitants. Quite possible to integrate, istn´t it?
A sudden wake up – for long or not? Strong images in media and strong feelings – but when feelings fade away? Consistent choices, true committments are needed, grounded in …faith, hope, love…perhaps religion and Christianity is needed more than ever? Because that is what a true encounter with Jesus Christ will give. To take this encounter seriously is a good challenge to us!
Domino received quite a few new students the last weeks, Swedish students and exchange students. We made a good start, let´s form a community of friendship between us and with others, why not with refugees?
yours br Björn
