Dear Friends in Christ,
What does it mean to be the one body of Christ, and how do we work together toward multicultural congregations?
Please join me on Wednesday, May 24, at 1 p.m. CDT, for a 45-minute webinar. We will explore these questions, and I will share an important resource for synod and congregational leadership.
This resource, “One Body, Many Members: A journey for Christians across race, culture and class,” has three parts:
- One Body, Similar Members, Leadership Readiness
- Meeting My Neighbor Again for the First Time
- One Body, Many Members, Challenges of Diversity
During the webinar, I will introduce you to Part One: One Body, Similar Members, Leadership Readiness. This resource is designed for congregational leadership and can be an important part of planning and discovery toward becoming multicultural congregations. Join me as we overview the content which includes: Bible studies, group questions, stories, survey tools and more.
