  1. Share
0 0

People interpret what we do based on their worldview. In Honor-Shame cultures, people might misinterpret and see in our actions merit making, proselytization or apostasy, however pure our motivation may be. We’ll look at honor-shame based worldviews, understand how and why people may misinterpret what we do, look at risks and practices to help show and share God’s love appropriately. We’ll use observations from relief and urban poor work in SE Asia to illustrate. Application is relevant both overseas or close to home when reaching out to neighbors from honor-shame contexts.

Session recorded on Friday, November 10th during Session Block #2 at 10:00 AM EST ; speaker: Alex Tee.
