Child of intercultural parents 

In the barber chair last week: I told my hairdresser that I got my certificate as an Emotion Focussed Therapist. And that I was looking for another intercultural couple with marital problems to practice with. "Oh my parents!" she exclaimed!   She is the child of intercultural parents and always felt different from her Dutch nieces and nephews. She didn't get fancy expensive gifts. She looked and felt very different. Her father was called 'black whopper'. By the Dutch in-laws! That all hurts terribly. No wonder she had a very hard time in her youth. The parents struggled among themselves, exacerbated by the concern for their children.  In any case, I see it all around me: children of mixed parents often struggle with identity questions. This deserves attention, not only for the children themselves,

Bible study for non-native speakers. How do you do that? 

ICP will come up with something new in the spring of 2022: circle material for non-native speakers about the Bible book of Ruth. What are the challenges and what should you really pay attention to? Receive tips from someone with practical experience…  First back to our first article on this subject? Just wondering why we are developing our own Bible study materials for speakers of other languages? Why is it important to create places where non-native speakers can receive biblical education?  click here: https://www.icpnetwork.nl/en/news/new-at-icp-bible-study-for-non-native-speakers-why/  What are the main things to look out for?  Eszter Bruining is someone who has extensive experience in giving Bible studies to non-native speakers and can tell a lot about the practice. From her personal lessons she gives us an overview of things we have to deal with.

New date Network Day: March 5 

We will still have to deal with measures due to the pandemic in the coming period. A number of measures affect the amount of people allowed to come together in a room at the same time. Of course we would like to be able to organize all our activities again as soon as possible. And not just online. But we still choose to move the Network Day, planned on February 5, to March 5. We hope that spring will also bring some relaxation in terms of measures.  Save The Date: March 5, 2022.  The ICP network day, with inspiring meetings, experienced speakers, in-depth workshops and connection around the mission.
