A few updates:

Wednesday, September 8 at 5PM:  A Reception for my new book:

Many Colors: Cultural Intelligence for a Changing Church by Soong-Chan Rah

Sponsored by North Park University

Following a short overview of the book by Dr. Rah, a dialogue with church leaders who engage in multicultural competency in their ministries will take place, exploring various approaches.  The discussion will cover tips for success and well as lessons they have learned along the way.

Professor Rah will be available following the dialogue for a book signing.

WHERE:   Gleacher Center       Room 600

The Gleacher Center is located on the north side of the Chicago River 1 block east of the Sheraton Hotel (site of the CCDA Conference), the second building west of Michigan Avenue. Enter on the east side of the building. Room 600 is on the 6th floor.

Fresh fruit will be served.

Due to limited space, you must RSVP for this event.  If you are interested, contact me to get your name on the guest list.

    Greeting Soong=Chan

    I went through Janis at Moody Publishing on Friday(yesterday) to see if we could do a radio interview Monday.
    I dont know if you are off from teaching that day, or available or not….but would love to have you on ABQ Connect, a daily talk show in Albuquerque NM. We would discuss key points from the Many Colors book.

    let me know if that is possible in the 1pm MT hour(2pm CT) or if we could record something with you earlier
    or even this weekend still.
