A few weeks ago the good people at (in)courage asked Deidra Riggs to participate in their Better Together series, a conversation about what it really looks like in real time and in real life to love our neighbors as ourselves and to walk around in someone else’s shoes.
Deidra then turned around and asked me if I would be willing to join the Better Together conversation and talk a bit with her about our “cross-cultural friendship.” I didn’t hesitate to answer a resounding YES! This is a topic Deidra and I have talked about more than once, and I was eager to share some of our thoughts with a broader audience.
So we posted a question on Facebook — If you were to ask us a question about navigating and nurturing a cross-cultural friendship, what would you want to know? — and then together we addressed some of the great questions we received. The results of that conversation are over at (in)courage as part of their Better Together series. I’d love for you to pour yourself a warm cuppa, pull up a chair, and join us over there.
