Breakfast 'Conversation' on Refugees

Wednesday February 1 2017

A ‘breakfast conversation’ will take place this Saturday morning (February 4) in Edinburgh to discuss personal and spiritual responses to the refugee crisis.

The event, hosted by Scottish Faiths Action for Refugees, will reflect on events of the past year, when governments and media in the global north have increasingly treated refugees and migrants as threats, rather than people who need help.

Leading the conversation at Liberton Northfield Church Hall will be Bruna Kadletz and John Sturrock.

Bruna Kadletz is a former dentist from Brazil, who now works with displaced communities and raises awareness of refugees. She has worked with refugees and asylum seekers in South Africa, Turkey, France and Greece and with newly arrived refugees in Brazil.

John Sturrock is an experienced mediator who helped establish the Place for Hope initiative, which works in churches and faith communities to promote conflict resolution and peacebuilding.

Bruna and John will ask whether it’s possible to respond to the refugee crisis from a ‘healing place’, and reflect on whether a spiritual response can be relevant in the face of so much human suffering.

The event starts at 9am in Liberton Northfield Church Hall, Claverhouse Drive, and includes breakfast. More details at www.sfar.org.uk/4-february-claverhouse-breakfast-conversation
