Unpacking Your World
contact us

We inherit many of our beliefs and world views from outside sources, such as: environment, media and culture. This, in turn, affects our understanding of ourselves and others. Therefore, the purpose of this session is to initiate the process of challenging our assumptions, stereotypes and prejudices. Global Ministries believes that to have meaningful relationships, we must first “unpack our baggage” in order to be more open to the world around us.

When does protecting your own interests — rebuilding your walls — keep you from reaching out to others? What prevents your church or community from reaching outside of itself?

Luke 10:40-42

Are we open to the hospitality of others? In what ways are you poor and blind to the good news brought by others?

Luke 4:18-19

In what ways are you poor and blind to the rest of the world? How are we practicing radical hospitality?

I Corinthians 12:12-27

What role do you play in society? What gifts are you called to share with the world?
