Check out “The Good News for Honor-Shame Cultures”

In the recent March 2017 issue of Lausanne Global Analysis, you’ll find an excellent article from my good friend, Jayson Georges.

Honor-Shame -Lausanne

The article is short but very full. It explains…

(1) the meaning of honor & shame,

(2) how honor & shame is a feature of God’s mission, 

(3) how honor & shame equips us for ministry in contemporary contexts.

Jayson highlights aspects of honor-shame within Western culture. He also links to a number of other resources to help you follow up on anything that spurs a question. Enjoy!
