The Unique Opportunity in Crossing Cultures


In this occasional TPC series in which we consider what might be familiar Christian themes in fresh ways, Dave Schmelzer looks at the unrivaled power of crossing cultures on God's behalf.

Why is that one action so often connected with experiencing spiritual power? Dave tells dramatic personal stories on these lines involving, like, Hezbollah, but then has a wealth of day-to-day looks at this, especially zeroing in on how this might play out as we cross profound cultural divisions that might exist between us and our family and friends.
