Why Understanding Honor and Shame Can Make Or Brake a Cross-Cultural Ministry?
This week’s #MissionsLink is something I’ve been quite excited about:
It raises the theme of Honor and Shame.
The topic of Honor and Shame, in my opinion, has been one of the greatest blind spots for many serving cross-culturally. Without seeing the fabric of Honor and Shame one is left with only superficial and shallow feel for much that is going on around.
This week’s link will actually take you to a video webinar presentation titled “Giving honor: A key to fruitful cross-cultural partnerships“. It is accompanied with a pdf and a slide-share presentation.
As I watched the webinar through, it impacted me deeply. Especially the part that reveals the secret of how it is truly possible to be able to give honor to other people. And giving honor is key in most cross-cultural interactions, as this presentation asserts.
What has been your experience with Honor and Shame?
