Jesus said it plainly: "Go and make disciples of all the nations." How do we live this out in our ordinary lives?
The world is changing. More than ever, God is bringing people from other countries and cultures into our neighborhoods, workplaces, and schools. But we often don't know how to start building meaningful relationships with them. In Across the Street and Around the World, Jeannie Marie shows us that following Jesus' final instructions doesn't have to be as daunting or as impossible as we might imagine.
Step-by-step, Marie walks us through the shifts in perspective necessary to align our hearts, minds, and everyday lives with God's heart for the nations. Using personal stories and plenty of inspiration, she gently guides us away from common missteps, while offering practical tips and spiritual lessons for engaging in cross-cultural relationships with love and purpose. At the end of the day, connecting with people from different backgrounds simply starts with walking across the street as we join in God's plans for our neighborhoods, our cities, and the world.
