When I think of the world culture, I think diversity and not just from an ethnic perspective. Understanding the beautiful dynamic of ‘culture’ became really significant almost 17 years ago when I joined a small, multi-ethnic, diverse church that has grown phenomenally.
I learned from so many different people, but what stood out to me the most regarding culture was an event called Dinner in the Dark – an awareness event so to speak that opened our eyes (no pun intended) to the life of the blind. We are all so different, but it’s beautiful to see how our differences really complement each other. It’s even more beautiful when we allow ourselves to step outside of our comfort zones to understand those not so like ourselves. There’s so much to learn, so much to see and experience well beyond race, but also lifestyles, religious affiliations, hobbies…
How are you embracing other cultures?
