How do we live Christ’s hospitality in diverse communities? What are the different assumptions we make about others based on their race and cultural background and, more importantly, why do we make them? How do these assumptions affect our behavior? How does this impact our ability to successfully manage intercultural interactions and diverse ministry environments? This workshop is designed for those who wish to serve in multicultural communities. It will provide you with a safe place to engage in deep dialogue about issues of race and ethnic relations. You will learn through case studies, authentic testimonies, and relevant scholarly material. Even though this workshop will focus mainly on Latino populations, the information and strategies covered can be applied to most multicultural contexts.
