On soup & culture

Posted on July 12, 2011 by


If culture is the soup we swim in every day…then we had better gain some mastery in dicing in some fortified vegetables…so we can effect the soup’s flavor.

Being salt would be a good start.

As cross-cultural missionaries, we need not only know the message…but how to contextualize it so as to reach our audience.
• Lift the lid & stir the soup: what’s important to them?
• Seize opportunities to speak biblical truth in response to their realities.
• Equip them to respond to life’s challenges in a way that brings honor & glory to God.
• Respond to their sinful choices & behavior redemptively: mistakes then become an opportunity to become more Godly.
