Rev. Bob talks about his time on a Greek Island helping migrants

A recent Discovery Group was led by Rev. Bob Janis Dillon. He passionately shared his experiences on the Greek Island, Samos, where migrants from Syria had found safety after crossing the Mediterranean Sea. Their homeland is a war torn country leading desperate people to cross treacherous seas in crowded boats rather than stay in their homeland. Rev. Bob explained the difficulties the migrants have to go through during their stay in Samos, but what was heart-warming was the support and compassion the Greek people showed the migrants. It was also good to learn that the Unitarian Merseyside District has been involved, mainly through all the hard work of Zubia Hawcroft from Warrington Cairo Street Chapel where Rev. Bob ministers. Zubia is involved with the organisation Lifeline Help. For more information please visit www.lifelinehelp.org/contact-life-line-help/.

Thank you Rev. Bob for our first Discovery Group, inspirational talk!
