There's a great quote that asks, "What does he know of England who only England knows?" The implication is that we can never really understand who we are unless we consider our lives in relation to others.

In this fascinating study, participants will explore the African country Zimbabwe, once known as Southern Rhodesia. First settled around 1300 CE, this country has a rich yet turbulent history. Issues of race, class, ancestry, and economic disparity have all played a part in its development. Even today, despite their democratically elected leaders, they continue to face serious political, social, economic, and spiritual challenges. And while Zimbabwe may be literally on the other side of the world, we are linked by the millions of dollars of humanitarian aid we provide to their population of over eleven million residents--and more importantly by our call as Christians to understand and, by understanding, to value all God's children.
