Cultural Humility: Building Bridges of Understanding Across Difference
June 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Much of the conflict in our world is due to our inability to be in community with individuals and groups who are different from us. This brokenness happens on a global scale, but it also happens in our governments, schools, workplaces, and playgrounds. Positions become entrenched, making it difficult to engage respectfully and peacefully with those we consider the “other.” This discussion will explore the role of cultural humility in the Christian life. We will look at some common ways that people engage with cultural differences (some helpful and some less helpful), and explore cultural humility as a possible way forward.

My passion for growth, learning, and teaching was instrumental in my career path.
