One of the big challenging questions facing the church in each generation is “how do we love our neighbor? In fact Jesus’ question from Luke 10 “who is my neighbor?” has taken on new meaning in this generation where the wonderful diversity of our world is more and more reflected in our communities. But being in the same city doesn’t mean we are automatically involved in each other’s lives, does it?. In reality we often find that wanting to love others who are different than us can be quite challenging, even fearful, for all of us as fallen people.
Dr. Carl Ellis has spent many decades as a cultural prophet, equipping believers to fulfill the great commission, by addressing the need to understand clearly the world views that compete against the gospel. Here is a link to his, and his wife Karen’s, web site: https://www.ellisperspectives.com/about
In this seminar Dr. Ellis will equip us with the theological tools and cross-cultural wisdom that can increase our confidence that we can reach into the world of others to experience the mutual growth that always happens in healthy cross-cultural encounters. We are anticipating a great time of learning and of being challenged to be the cross-cultural people of God, sent to a skeptical world armed with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We at Faith Christian Fellowship are excited that we are able to host this seminar. during our annual Unity Month. We guarantee that you will not go away unchanged!
