Friday, 1:30 – 2:45 PM
Presented by: Werner Mischke
What’s your framework? Our framework for the mission of God helps determine our framework for short-term missions. We will examine a framework continuum. On the one extreme of the continuum is the legal framework (duty, responsibility, gospel solving problem of guilt). On the other extreme is the regal framework (honor, blessing, gospel solving problem of shame). Where is your mission team on this continuum? What’s your gospel? We will examine some principles about contextualizing the gospel. We will explore the myth of a culturally neutral gospel. Newbigin wrote, Every interpretation of the gospel is embodied in some cultural form. We will consider this principle: The gospel is already contextualized for honor-shame cultures(Jackson Wu). What are your tools? We will conclude with an introduction to evangelistic tools that use an honor-shame framework, including The Father’s Love Gospel Booklet and the GodTools app with Honor Restored.
