Product description
Are you a leader, clergy or lay, in a Catholic parish wrestling with how to bridge the multiple ethnic, linguistic, and racial communities that increasingly comprise your parish? With these cultural backgrounds frequently come diverse perspectives on everything from how to communicate with each other to how to understand God. In addition, such cultural divisions all too often manifest differences in the access these communities have to parish decision-making structures. In Building Bridges, Not Walls - Construyamos puentes, no muros, John Francis Burke highlights the dramatic impact the growing Latino presence is having in parishes across the country, considers the theology of inculturation and intercultural ministry, and provides practical pastoral ministry suggestions on doing intercultural ministry. Includes full text in both English and Spanish. ?Eres un lider, clerigo o laico que trabaja en una parroquia catolica y que lucha todos los dias por llegar a las diversas comunidades etnicas, linguisticas y raciales cada vez mas presentes en su parroquia? Estos grupos poseen como parte de su cultura diversas formas de ser y de pensar, desde como comunicarse con los demas hasta la misma concepcion de Dios. Ademas, esas diferencias culturales a menudo implican una mayor o menor posibilidad de acceder a las estructuras de gobierno dentro de la parroquia. En Construyamos puentes, no muros - Building Bridges, Not Walls, John Francis Burke muestra el impacto tan grande que los latinos estan teniendo en las parroquias del pais; explica la teologia de la inculturacion y del ministerio intercultural; y ofrece sugerencias practicas para quienes trabajan en este ultimo. Incluye texto complete en Ingles y Espanol.
