America has always been termed a melting pot, but no period in time has approached the current numbers of international travelers and immigrants. In this time of transition to a more multicultural society, it's natural to want not only to build relationships with others, but to di it in a mutually friendly way. Author Patty Lane expounds upon the different worldviews and mindset of "being" and "doing" cultures, explaining how our worldviews allow us to value different things, often causing miscommunication. She explains how promptness and direct conversation may be seen as commendable or rude depending on which culture you're from. Learn to understand and even appreciate situations such as these, as you start learning how to navigate the waters of culture. 206 pages, softcover.
The global village has arrived. Recent census figures show that communities in the United States are more culturally and ethnically diverse than ever before. And you may be just one of many who find it challenging to build relationships with people from backgrounds unlike your own.
Lane is director of the Office of Intercultural Initiatives for the Baptist General Convention of Texas, based in Dallas. Experienced in working with more than twenty different language and culture groups, she regularly conducts seminars and workshops to help churches minister in multicultural settings.
