  1. Christena Cleveland, author of Disunity in Christ, on Hospitality

    Hospitality is a wonderful thing. It is generous and selfless and a gift. When we misunderstand it as ministry, however, we abandon any chance of truly becoming cross-cultural.

  2. Christena Cleveland, author of Disunity in Christ, on Coming and Going

    The Church can no longer consider asking people that are different than them to show up in their building. It is time to stop expecting people to come and instead time embrace the model that relinquishes power and comfort and leaves the safe space. It is time to go.

  3. Christena Cleveland, author of Disunity in Christ, on What It Means To Be "Us"

    When the Holy Spirit arrived for the first time in the Upper Room, it came bearing the gift to speak other languages. It's first act was to empower the disciples to expand the kingdom and to allow more people to be "us".

  4. Christena Cleveland, author of Disunity in Christ, on Cross-Cultural Jesus

    There are many ways to become cross-cultural. You can move into a new neighborhood, go to a new church or go to college away from home. But Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth to be with humans, he set a new standard for cross-cultural ministry and that was only the beginning.

  5. Christena Cleveland, author of Disunity in Christ, on The Moms Bible Study

    Being cross-cultural doesn't mean you have to do missions work overseas but it does mean you have to intentionally interact with people different than you, even when it means a single woman talking about cloth diapers and tips on teething.
