Abstract
Becoming neighbors in biblical perspective is the believer's task, which encompasses the life-long cultivation of Christian virtues that touch humanity and exemplify Kingdom character. With the assumption that knowledge and understanding of another's experiences generally diminishes negative feelings and prejudices, this project employed the Scale of Ethnocultural Empathy (SEE) created by Dr. Yu-Wei Wang as a pre- and post-test. Tests measured participants' attitudes toward people of different ethnic origin and cultures than their own. After engaging participants in a six-week series on global people movements and cross-cultural engagement with refugees, t-tests results showed an overall increase in ethnocultural empathy.
