really liked it

If you look around your congregation and every one looks pretty much like you (as mine does to me) and you wonder how to do outreach to those don't look like you, read this book. You'll learn much from this "failed" missionary -- her writing and teaching should be read by every congregation thinking of doing community outreach to "the other."

message 1: by Leah (new) - added it

Leah yes. West LA is very ethnically and culturally diverse, and we need to find ways to involve and engage some of the newer people from middle-eastern cultures who also are newcomers to Christianity. Bibles in Farsi and setting up a "Persian Patio" on the lawn most Sundays is only a meager start, but it's something, right?
