Event description

Description

Saturday March 17, 2018 – 8:30 AM to Noon.

(Cross-Cultural Fellowship Lunch after the Event – Noon to 2:00PM)

As residents of Montgomery County, we have the privilege of living in the most multi-ethnic county in America. However, with diversity, and its differing cultural values, comes inevitable tension. How should diversity co-exist in community? How do we harmonize without losing individuality and cultural distinctiveness? How does the gospel of Jesus Christ advance this discussion? Come join the dialogue as we engage these matters through CrossTalk.

Speaker: Dr. Carl Ellis, Jr.
