Listen to Under-the-Tree Conversations

At the KUSHAMIRI | FLOURISH Consultation, members and friends of Micah Global shared ‘Under a Tree’ on topics where they have knowledge, wisdom and experience. Here is a selection from around the world. Others will be added over time.

Kuki Rokhum: Creation Care

Michel Kenmogne: Language and Flourishing

Micah Kenmogne of SIL looks at the theme of Kushamiri from the lenses of language. More specifically, I suggest that language can either unlock and expand possibilities for flourishing or hinder and lock them. In this presentation, I will briefly explore flourishing as a missional concept and consider some of the ways in which language interacts with it. The end-result will be to invite us all to consider the ways in which we can work in synergy in order to enhance our collaboration with God to see his glory manifested in His entire creation as people understand his purposes, pursue and experience flourishing in all aspects of their lives.

Dave Bookless: Can Humanity Flourish without Destroying the Planet?
