Registration is now closed for this event.
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.

Difference just is. Generational, theological, and cultural differences are variously perceived. What we do with difference makes a difference and is key to congregational health and vitality. How do we creatively exercise our love, power, and authority for the good of our congregations and its individual members? This day long conflict transformation training is available to UU congregations in Rio Grande/4 Corners clusters and is open to all congregational leaders (senior high school age and up). Facilitator: Rev. Deborah Holder, MDD Minister of Beloved Community
