Culture, Race and the Kingdom
with Michael MyCresha Burns
Session 1: Culture and the Kingdom
We are a multi-ethnic family of believers that live and function in a multi-cultural world, yet veryfew of us have any cross-cultural training. This session instructs disciple in a very down-to-earth way what culture is and how it can cause conflicts if we’re unaware of the dynamic of culture clashes. It provides very easy-to-understand principles to guide individuals and a church body to cross in their cultural sensitivity, understanding, and communication.
A socially learned system of knowledge and behavioral patterns shared by a certain group of people. In other words, it is a way of life to which a particular society adheres.
Session 2: Race and the Kingdom
This session answered questions like “Why talk about race and culture in the body of Christ?” and “Why are they so many conflicts revolving around race and historical perspectives?” It is necessary to understand a bit of history behind the racial conflict in our country as well as the role that religion has played in that conflict so that we can begin to have a better understanding of what it means to be God’s family of all people and nations in the world today.
Session 3: How Does This Work?
Breaking into small groups a highly interactive discussions concerning the topics addressed in the first two sessions.
