Young Christians develop a common theology of migration
Deadline for receiving applications: 16th April 2017 midnight CET!
Are you confused about some churches engaging a lot in hosting migrants and others refusing to welcome non-Christians – both arguing
based on the Bible? Are you ready to look at the theological foundations of migration and hospitality – even if that means questioning your attitudes and opinions?
Do you believe that young people, not necessarily being theologians, from various denominations and European countries can come up with a
common theology of migration?
Do you want to contribute to the discussion churches in Europe are having
about migration? Then this activity might be THE ONE for you!
When/Where: The training course will take place between 4th and 11th June 2017 in Stockholm,
Who: We are looking for participants from 18‐30 years old from different backgrounds : youth work, creative occupations, church leaders, activism and more!
AIM: The aim of this training course is to look at migration and theology of migration from different denominational and national backgrounds, promote the course’s findings towards
churches and society as well as countering theologically reasoned reservations towards migration. Therefore, the following objectives will be some of the topics of the training course:
• Investigating and evaluating existing drafts and approaches for theologies
• Developing a common scientific theology of migration;
• Sharing and discussing this theology with others;
• Promoting the final result towards churches and society and contributing
to an inclusive Europe welcoming people in need.
This event will be part of EYCE’s Campaign #WeAreEurope! focused on migration,
European identity and values.
