Conversations on Intercultural Communication

Have You Ever?

• Wanted to have an authentic conversation with a person of a different race or culture and got stuck?

• Wanted to have ways of talking about cultural and racial difference without being misunderstood?

• Wondered what changes might take place in your congregation if you have a pastor of a different cultural or racial identity?


If So…

• Would you like to learn some communication tools to help make conversation and understanding easier?

• Would you like to experience difference as a way to be in relationship rather than to be separated?


Then You Are Invited to Attend

• The Eastern Pennsylvania Conference UMC will conduct seven conference-wide trainings that will expose participants to information and engage them in conversations designed to create an awareness for developing intercultural competency.

• The objective is to introduce, influence, impact and instill new ways of thinking, speaking and relating in matters of race, culture, diversity and inclusion.

• This skill set will facilitate more effective appointment-making and relating within congregations as well as with the communities they serve.

• Every clergy person is expected to attend and bring at least 3 lay people.
