Did you know that the DFW area is getting close to being 50% international! Right now it is 44% international and it is growing. Just take a minute and think about that. We are talking around 2,500,000 people of other cultures and faiths who live here! That is a lot of people. Is that a large enough number to cause a little urgency in us? That number is bigger than the population of many countries!
How are we going to love all these people? They are not going to just show up in our churches. Even if they did, most would not understand anything that goes on in a church because of language and cultural differences. We have to get into their world and we have to truly love them. It is not at all difficult to befriend people from other cultures. Most are great and generous people. Become a great friend to them and you are considered their family. You will get lots of great food too!
We will have to get creative, but our goal is for you to meet and befriend people of other faiths. Of course we will walk you through this process and help you understand other cultures and how to share your life with them too.
It may be your neighbors, co-workers, or fellow students, or it could be visiting foreign-looking restaurants and coffee shops, or even visiting Mosques and temples.
