I was honored to be a keynote speaker at the Verge 2021 Conference. I spoke on Intercultural Ministry. I hope you get a chance to read my co-edited book Intercultural Ministry which is a helpful book for us living in an age of migration, refugees, immigration…..We need to be able to engage in ministry which welcomes and celebrates difference.
You can now view my keynote talk on YouTube
It was a joy to be On the Verge Podcast to talk about my spirituality and my books Healing Our Broken Humanity and Hope in Disarray.
