Europe (MNN) — Even in the worst of times, especially in the worst of times, God is at work. There’s proof of that with the refugee crisis, which has been migrating into Europe.
After forces of war and terrorism, hundreds of thousands have poured into Europe–legally and illegally. Some countries–Sweden, Luxembourg, Holland, Germany, and the UK–have gladly opened arms to the persecuted and war-torn victims. But Hungary, Poland, Slovakia, Romania, and the Czech Republic have closed the gates– some figuratively, others literally.
“We must not fall prey to nationalist sentiments in these moments. It is precisely now that we need more Europe, not less,” German Chancellor Angela Merkel said last week in the European Parliament. “We need to see them as people, not as an anonymous mass, irrespective of whether they have a right to stay or not.”
