Inter-cultural aspects of ICGB 2018

Published on September 5, 2018

What a great experience it was, to once again enjoy the different cultures, from the African ladies to the ladies in the Pacific, from the Caribbean to Europe and of course our sisters in Asia, with their dancing and singing, to the worshipping of the different cultures, which was so amazing.

This is my 6th ICGB and each one has been different, teaching us many ways of communicating, worshipping, the different cultural diversities of our Girls’ Brigade World. The colours of our cultural dress, our singing and our different ways we portray how we worship.  This is all brought together when we sing the same song or say the Lord’s Prayer in our own language.  What an amazing feeling we all get, showing that we are all joined with the one purpose in our life, is to be one in God.

I always go away from these Conferences uplifted in Christ, praying for our sisters from around the world, and realising that they also have the same issue that we have with our girls in our areas.  We are truly blessed in the work of transforming lives, enriching God’s world.
