Finding Refuge – 60 Minutes Special

Highly recommend viewing this CBS 60 minutes special ‘Finding Refuge.’ It details stories of resettled refugees including interviews with US State Department officials and refugees in Zaatari Camp Jordan who were resettled to the US. Pastor Bryant Wright of Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, in deep Republican Marietta, Georgia, just outside Atlanta, was also interviewed. He shares the story of his church’s involvement with one family, and challenges:

Isn’t it better to reach out and love these folks than to give them the cold shoulder? Which approach do you think might cause a Muslim refugee to be more sympathetic to Islamic terrorism?”

Many stereotypes and fear exist surrounding this issue. This special cuts right to the sources and people involved in the crisis.
