Building skills for intercultural communication and community is key to living into the power and potential of our faith. Who Are Our Neighbors introduces participants to a developmental model of engaging with difference and culture. Based on the Developmental Model for Intercultural Sensitivity, it recognizes that each of us has varying degrees of exposure, familiarity, and comfort with differences. Differences can create challenges that can either invigorate or divide a church or community. We cannot benefit from the fullness of each person's humanity or build the beloved community we yearn for unless we can see and appreciate the differences among us.
