Never displaced from good

When a problem is so widespread, so seemingly colossal, how does one effectively pray?

According to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, at the end of 2020, 82.4 million people were forcibly displaced either outside their home country as refugees or internally within their nation’s borders (unhcr.org).

This number has become of growing concern right here on my own doorstep. In recent weeks and months, people in Ethiopia, where I am living, are being internally displaced because of an escalating civil war, and some are fleeing to neighboring countries. I have been deeply distressed by the magnitude of this problem and what I have been hearing in the news and in the community around me.

We'd love to hear from you!
