“The Peace Between” Dialogue
MORE THAN A FILM – AN OPPORTUNITY TO OPEN DIALOGUE
Three countries. Six nationalities. One Film.
“The Peace Between” explores how unlikely friendships can begin and continue to grow. We meet three Europeans who have had displaced people come into their country and their lives.
The goal of this project is to help you provide an intentionally safe conversation space for people viewing the “The Peace Between” film. We developed supporting materials suitable for churches as well as student and community groups. Translations of the discussion guide and subtitles in 20 languages are in the process of being added.
Together we can speak out, learn and make a difference. The Hope for Europe Refugee Campaign aims to combine Christians, churches, member- and specialist organizations to be the response to the asylum Crisis in Europe.
