Malala Yousafzai introduces some of the people behind the statistics and news stories we read or hear every day about the millions of people displaced worldwide. Malala's experiences visiting refugee camps caused her to reconsider her own displacement-- first as an Internally Displaced Person when she was a young child in Pakistan, and then as an international activist who could travel anywhere in the world except to the home she loved. In We Are Displaced, which is part memoir, part communal storytelling, Malala not only explores her own story, but she also shares the personal stories of some of the incredible girls she has met on her journeys-- girls who have lost their community, relatives, and often the only world they've ever known. In a time of immigration crises, war, and border conflicts, We Are Displaced is an important reminder from one of the world's most prominent young activists that every single one of the 68.5 million currently displaced is a person-- often a young person-- with hopes and dreams.

Christians are prone to so focus on the realities of Jesus' divinity that we minimize or ignore the realities of his humanity. That he called himself the Son of Man more than any other title emphasizes that Jesus lived humanly in our fallen world, facing our temptations and living out the tensions of being human in the flow of life. He was just like us, human in a sinful world, yet he did not sin. So what can we learn from Jesus' glorious life about the meaning of our own humanity, about the tensions of being human in a sinful world and the difference between being a sinner and being a finite, flesh-and-blood human being? With this book as a helpful and trustworthy guide, you will begin to see how we can learn from Jesus how to: - live gracefully in our bodies, even our wounded and dying bodies - live with integrity as finite human beings who are created to enjoy limits - love our family, friends, neighbors, strangers, and enemies - enjoy being alone without being lonely - enjoy the good things of life - wear our scars with hope and dignity - learn to die As Dr. Russ shows, it is by truly encountering, understanding, and learning from Jesus' humanity that we can become more fully and truly human.

In the decade after 9/11, Rev. Seth Kaper-Dale did what preachers were doing all across America--he entered the pulpit and tried to claim Jesus Christ as the risen one who is ushering in a renewed and restored kingdom, even as it seemed that so many nations and special interest groups were claiming power and authority. Over the course of a decade many of the sermons directly addressed the great issues through reflection on the biblical narrative. Sometimes that interaction resulted in the congregation being moved by faith to enter the fray and to address issues such as war, natural disasters, sexual orientation, economic disparity, immigration reform, interfaith matters, and ecological disaster. In short, when the Bible met the big issues in congregational space and time, the church was transformed in Spirit and made ready for real action. In thirty-four sermons that go from pre-emptive war to the Arab Spring, Seth insists that nothing that happens in real history lies outside the realm of theological reflection, and that there is nothing a congregation cannot delve into once it has seen why the particular kingdom message of Jesus Christ is stronger than any other power.

The purpose of this study was to examine the situation of the lost girls and boys of Sudan and to identify the effects of civil war in the country. The effects of war in the country left most Sudanese traumatized in refugee camps, while a few managed to relocate to the United States and settle in South Dakota. Through this study, some of the lived experiences of several lost girls and boys who have suffered psychologically and socially as a result of being exposed to civil war and being forced to relocate to the United States have been identified. The degree to which these Sudanese immigrants’ current lives in the U.S. are affected by what they witnessed and experienced, as well as the extent to which their treatment was helpful in restoring their mental health, was also examined. Information from the interviews showed that each of the experiences of these young men and women were unique and that each immigrant coped with their experiences differently. One conclusion drawn from the study was that a majority of the support for these new immigrants should be given to those individuals who are 18 or older when they arrive.
