This summer, seventeen InterVarsity staff and students took part in Borderlands, a special track of the Los Angeles Urban Project. They spent time in Tijuana, San Diego, and Fresno to learn more about the issue of immigration and to understand the issue through a Christian lens.
My neighborhood’s the type of place InterVarsity students might visit for an Urban Project. It’s the type of place people lock their car doors as they drive through. Quite frankly, it’s the type of place young people don’t return to after college.
When my husband and I were newlyweds, our fancy cooking gear from our registry did not make me an expert in the kitchen. I remember one time when I quickly washed our Calphalon wok, leaving behind some splashes of water.
So you’ve caught the vision of a multiethnic and cross cultural Church…now what? It’s not easy to discern what practical steps to take toward that goal. Perhaps the multicultural worship you experienced at the Urbana Student Missions Conferences is lacking when you visit home on breaks.
