This course seeks to increase the student’s understanding of individual and group characteristics, identity/world view (e.g. ethnicity, race, gender, class) and their knowledge of traditions of various groups in North America and around the world. This course requires one or two short cross-cultural mission trips outside of class. Past trips have included the Red Lake Indian Reservation and the Phillips neighborhood in Minneapolis. Students will examine their role as incarnational representatives of Christ and His Church in a culturally diverse world.
