Spiritual Direction and Diversity: Tools for Greater Sensitivity
ESDA Virtual Event

Event Overview

How can we expand the diversity of our spiritual direction ministry? Without awareness, understanding, and training in intercultural encounters we can easily close the doors that we desire to open. Join us with ESDA’s own Ellen Kuo and Brenda Darby, who will help us grow in developing tools for greater sensitivity. We recommend Brenda’s book, Can We Have The Conversation?: A Spiritual Multicultural Approach to Racial Reconciliation.
