You are invited to an English Tea
March 31 at 11:00 am in Room 102
You are invited to an English tea with scones and all the trimmings! We will have a mission study on Baptist work in London taught by Felicity Gordan, a native of England, who is the current co-president of the Piedmont Baptist Association WMU.
No reservations are necessary. Cost is $3 at the door.
Just a few minutes on a city street is proof of the multicultural feel of London today. Muslim women wearing hijabs, Sikh men wearing turbans, Eastern Europeans, South Asians, North Africans, Somalis, Iranians, and Iraqis mix in a jumble of languages, cultures, and lifestyles. New York Magazine likened London to the New York City of the early 1900s during its great age of immigration.
This city of 8.5 million has become a “multilingual capital” with inhabitants speaking 300 different languages. More than 30 percent of all London school children speak a language other than English at home, and a diversity of religions pervades the city streets. Mosques as well as Hindu and Sikh temples dot the cityscape where once only Christian churches stood.
