Prayers for Peacemakers, April 6, 2016  Europe 

Pray for the refugees and migrants in Greece facing
deportation this week because of the European Union’s agreement with
Turkey.  Pray for CPT-Europe’s partners
on Lesvos, who are facing the shutdown of their collaborative, humane camp at
Pipka by the local authorities.  The
mayor of Lesvos plans to ship all the residents from Pipka to detention camps,
including some of the most vulnerable refugees: those with disabilities, lone
women and children, survivors of shipwrecks. 
Please prayerfully sign this petition to keep Pipka open.

Borders

People move. The human experience has included migration along every step of the way, and the nation state will not eliminate movement. So it’s about time we start to work with movement instead of continuously trying to stifle it.
