Decisions… we all face them. For many of us, we will never face the same life & death decisions that many face around the world today as they are forced to make tough decisions as a refugee fleeing war or persecution.
You can however, step into their story in a sense. A new app has been created by the UNHCR (United Nations High Commission for Refugees) which allows you to choose one of three characters and make their life and death decisions. The events and outcome of each story depends on your choices.

The app isn’t meant to trivialize real people and real stories but to engage and stir people’s minds and hearts. Some questions it stirred up for us that we think are worth pondering, talking about and working through.
- What should Canada’s attitude and policies be towards refugees/asylum seekers/immigrants?
- What should the Christian attitude be towards refugees/asylum seekers/immigrants?
- What does the bible say about refugees/asylum seekers/immigrants?
- Who are the refugees/asylum seekers/immigrants in the bible?
- What ways do we/you need to get involved to see a more Kingdom of God response?
What did it stir up for you?
