Intercultural Ministry United Church in Alberta - 18Intercultural Ministry Reflections & Photos

Thank you to four writers from ANW Conference who wrote on their experience of the Intercultural Ministry Education event, September 26-27.

Called “The Church’s Struggle to see Jesus from Intercultural Eyes,” the event was organized by Edmonton Presbytery and ANW Conference’s Intercultural Ministry Committee and held at Edmonton Korean United Church and Providence Centre. It followed up on last year’s educational event, “An Awkward Conversation” which focused on racism in the United Church. This year’s keynote speaker was Dr. Mary Joy Phillip, Assistant Professor of Lutheran Global Theology and Mission at Martin Luther University College, Waterloo, ON.
