Presented at:
SCL Conference 2013

ABSTRACT:

“Human Formation within an Intercultural Learning Community” will outline the value of taking classical education into cities, with their naturally cross-cultural settings. Christian formation happens most effectively within such contexts. Through real-world anecdotes from Logos Academy in York, PA and the application of ideas from James K.A. Smith, this seminar will share successful approaches for the development of learning communities that bridge significant ethnic and socioeconomic divides.
