Understanding Ethnic Identities Amidst Social Change in Asia: Implications for Christian Mission
Understanding Ethnic Identities: Case Studies
In several Asian cultures, ‘religion’ is inseparably associated with cultural and national identity. How do we understand and appreciate this? How do we engage with them and fulfil our Christian mission respectfully and peaceably? We will look at some case studies and discuss these questions in breakout groups. We hope to co-create a renewed understanding of Mission together. Be part of this community of reflective practitioners.
