Building Cultural Awareness Tour 2019

We can’t understand others until we understand ourselves.

The face of New Zealand has rapidly changed. There is an increasing need for greater cultural awareness. This applies in the church community as well as daily life. This workshop will equip you with greater understanding of the cultural complexities we face today.

Revised Workbooks $10

For those who have taken Building Cultural Awareness 1.0, this course builds on the basic concepts of culture, helping you to recognise how your Culture-based Judging System works in everyday life. The first session will cover our family background, nurture and discipline, and how the layout of our childhood home shapes and reinforces our culture. The second session will explore how we learned culture in various activities in our childhood home: relating and communicating, eating, working, giving/sharing resources, resting, and cleaning.

 



John 1:1

In the beginning was the Word
