:How diverse are your friendships? We are living in a time when fear and mistrust among people of different ethnic groups is becoming the norm rather than the exception. It appears that cultural divides are expanding rather than shrinking. What can we do? We can learn to see every human being from God's perspective instead of through the lenses of prejudice and bias. To truly connect with people who are different from us will take the grace of God. It will mean risking everything that we think we know about other cultures to initiate small steps toward befriending others. In The Colors of Culture, MelindaJoy Mingo models reaching across cultures. Through vivid stories spanning several countries, Mingo shows the beauty of diverse friendships in her life. She takes risks and learns from her mistakes, recognizing that relationships are worth the cost. Readers will:
Be empowered by both contemporary stories and biblical narratives to initiate crosscultural relationships
Learn from Jesus how to treat people with value and worth
Acknowledge where they are in their journey of cultural bias and prejudice and move forward with repentance
