European Roundtable 2020 "Radical Hospitality"
|Province||Skåne län (224)|
Come to the 18th Annual European Refugee Highway Partnership Roundtable in Malmö.
This year the roundtable theme will be "Radical Hospitality"
With almost 250,000 registered refugees Sweden is home to a higher proportion of people displaced by war, persecution, and humanitarian crises than any other European country. The port city of Malmö is Sweden's gateway. It is a city that faces the challenges of diverse cultures living together, and it is therefore fitting that this is the location for us to join together to delve into the challenge of radical hospitality discovering what it really means to welcome the outsider.
What to expect?
The RHP roundtable is a wonderful opportuniuty for followers of Jesus across Europe engaged in supporting and reaching out to refugees and asylum seekers to come together.
During the roundtable attendees will be able to:
Take part in various workshops with practical application to their ministry
Hear encouraging stories and inspirational challenges from around the continent
Meet and connect with other attendees
Discover and share useful resources in the resource area
Explore the wonderful and diverse city of Malmö, and discover local initiatives to welcome and support refugees and migrants.
Our plenary speaker this year is Niels Nymann Eriksen. Niels is pastor responsible for mission and cultural work at the ApostelKirken in the Vesterbro district of Copenhagen. The church has an international congregation and ministers to a number of immigrants within the locality. Niels has a passion for demonstrating true hospitality founded in the biblical principal of loving the stranger.
He combines a depth of real life experience with theological insight. He has authored the book "Hospitality" (Gaest Fri Hed in Danish) in which he explores the mindset we hold when we encounter those who are different, and the potential depth and meaning that can be found when we meet people with an attitude of curiosity, expectancy and kindness.
This year our costs are working a little differently as the hotel and conference venue are separate. This being the case, the registration costs we are asking for here are higher as they include paying for the conference venue and two meals each day. This means the hotel costs will be less and will just include bed and breakfast.
