Becoming Neighbours

Becoming Neighbours book cover shows two women greeting one another. In the background two houses overlap. Where the houses overlap, one door is highlighted.

Today, record numbers of people are on the move, displaced from their homes and countries by war, persecution, and climate disruption.

How might those of us in refugee-welcoming countries engage with this global reality while recognizing our shared humanity with people seeking safety? Could we move beyond border politics, cultural differences, language barriers, and personal anxieties to truly become neighbours?

This book shares Anika Bauman’s personal experience of transformation as a member of the Kinbrace community, a place where refugee claimants and Canadians live side by side. Through the warmth of her storytelling and her gift of reflection, Anika explores five core values — developed by a community in action — that are tangible, accessible, and lead to a world of welcome.
