The Seventh-day Adventist church will commemorate forth World Refugee Sabbath on 20 June 2020.
What do you think the kingdom of God is like?
What do you dream of when you think of the kingdom of God?
We dream of a kingdom of peace where there is no pain, no fighting, and no sin. What an image and what a contrast when we compare that kingdom with our world today. So we turn to God and we plead for help and we ask him to change the circumstances here on earth. We pray for his kingdom comes on earth as is in heaven.
But have you ever thought about how you and I can be part of that kingdom here on earth today?
These are the words of Pastor Marjukka Ostrovljanović in a sermon prepared especially for World Refugee Sabbath, 20 June. If that is an idea you would like to share in your church on 20 June, we encourage you to watch this trailer and download the available resources from the ADRA Europe website.
Pastor Ostrovljanović is from Finland and she completed her theological studies at Newbold. She is currently a pastor in Bavaria and her deep insights, particularly into the stories of the Old Testament, make her a creative and sought-after speaker, especially with youth.
While refugees are not in the headlines at the moment, they are still with us. Thank you for your care for them.
We pray that this day and this sermon will prove to be a blessing as together we remember the 70 million displaced people worldwide,
children of our Heavenly Father, who are struggling to find a future in the present.
Pastor Marjukka Ostrovljanović
