7:00 – 8:00 PM Eastern
Leader: Melissa Cooper
The command of Micah 6:8 to do justice, love mercy and walk humbly with God is a big one. It calls us to transform the world through our relationships with one another and those who are different from us. While that task can be intimidating, we have the opportunity within our church communities to prepare ourselves in ways that we might not expect! In this webinar, we will explore the idea that generations are cultures, and that we can practice cross-cultural skills within our church communities, and then take those skills into the world, intergenerationally. You will walk away from this webinar with practical tools to engage cross-generationally and cross-culturally in your church and community context.
