BRIDGES: What’s God got to do with Refugees?

What’s God got to do with Refugees? How should Christians think about refugees and forced immigration?

Come participate in our next THRIVE conversation with Dr. Mark Glanville. Mark is a scholar-pastor who ministers at Grandview Calvary Baptist Church in East Vancouver. Mark has authored, Adopting the Stranger as Kindred in Deuteronomy (Ancient Israel and its Literature; SBL, 2018), a book on Exodus (Lexham, 2019), numerous refereed articles (including in the Journal of Biblical Literature, 2018, and JSOT, 2019), and book chapters. Mark is presently co-authoring a book, Providing Refuge: A Missional and Political Theology (contracted with IVP, 2020). Mark is also a trained jazz pianist and enjoys thinking and writing collaboratively with his wife, Dr Erin Goheen Glanville. Mark and Erin live in Vancouver with their two children, and love to camp, share meals, and hang out in the cafes on Commercial Drive. Follow Mark’s work at his website 

The event will be held at Great Dane Coffee on Wednesday, March 4th from 7:00-8:30pm. This is a free event and all are welcome, you do not need to be a UBC student or community member to attend.

Please note, while this is a free event, Great Dane Coffee will still be open.  We encourage everyone to purchase a drink or pastry before the event. Andrew from Great Dane is being very generous in letting us use the space, let’s be kind back 🙂
