I turned on the news in Hong Kong and saw the blunder that Richard Gere made in New Delhi. If you don’t know what I am talking about, you can read it here.

I don’t know what it is… maybe we, Americans forget that we cannot just do whatever we want to do especially in another culture.

I am wondering how many culture faux pas we made on the mission field.

One part of the incarnational ministry is trying to understand the culture and the people that we are ministering unto.
