Burkas leave you tongue-tied?

How can I befriend the burka-clad mother at the playground? How can I begin a relationship with the Indian immigrants down the block? How can I get around my own sense of awkwardness to extend God's welcome?

I'm hoping to find out this Saturday morning at the Crossing Cultures Workshops. They start at 9 am with bagels and coffee. There are sessions on Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Chinese--all led by veteran Tenth partners who will be sharing their experiences and helping equip us.

It's really a two-fer: I get to both hear how God has helped them reach across cultural boundaries overseas and get pointers on how to do that here.

Hope you join me!
