WE RAISE BOOK CLUB
We seek to be continually learning about the issues our communities are facing in order to serve those around us. The We Raise Book Club reflects our commitment to raising up issues and leaders. Regularly, our book club will feature and give away copies of books we find relevant to our focus areas.
PLEASE NOTE: We acknowledge that there are a wide variety of opinions and responses to the issues our communities are facing. We believe that a posture of learning requires an open mind and a willingness to engage with ideas and opinions different from your own. While our team does have criteria for featured books, inclusion of a book in the We Raise Book Club does not imply endorsement of the author or their opinions.
The Colors of Culture: The Beauty of Diverse Friendships
by MelindaJoy Mingo
How diverse are your friendships? We are living in a time where fear and mistrust among people of different cultural and ethnic groups is becoming the norm rather than the exception. It appears that cultural and racial divides are expanding rather than shrinking.
What can we do? We can learn to see every human being from God’s perspective and value their experiences even when we don’t understand them. To truly connect with people who are different from us will take the grace of God, compassion, and empathy. It will mean risking everything that we think we know about other cultures to initiate small steps toward befriending others.
In The Colors of Culture, Melinda Joy Mingo models reaching across cultures. Through vivid stories spanning several countries, Mingo shows the beauty of diverse friendships in her life. She takes risks and learns from her mistakes, recognizing that relationships are worth the cost. Read more on Amazon.com.
