Giving Honor: a Key to Healthy Cross-Cultural Partnerships

Presented by: Werner Mischke

Description: PROBLEM: Objective 1: Observe from Scripture and social science that RIVALRY was a problem in the N.T. world; correspondingly, honor competition and rivalry was a major challenge for the N.T. church. Objective 2: Examine what rivalry and honor competition look like in mission agencies, networks, or cross-cultural partnerships today. Bring to the surface honor-status issues that often remain unstated in cross-cultural collaboration. SOLUTION: Ojective 3: Explore the Scriptures showing Jesus and Paul revealing that serving and “giving honor” undermine rivalry and honor competition. Objective 4: Consider what “giving honor” looks like in cross-cultural partnerships today. It often looks like empathic listening. The primary audience for this workshop is those who are collaborating cross-culturallyÑorganizationally or personally in the mission.
