Responding when culture harms

Culture is something to be celebrated and shared, part of the glorious diversity of God’s creation. But all cultures also have aspects that are oppressive and harmful. Development agencies and missionaries are often accused of either ignoring culture or imposing their own culture on others. In this forum we will be looking at what role we have as agencies committed to an integral expression of mission in challenging and responding to negative aspects of culture and the underlying beliefs that lead to these practices. We will be addressing the questions of whether we have a right and responsibility to challenge negative aspects of culture (including those within the church), particular in cultures other than our own and if so how do we go about this? How can these aspects of culture be transformed by biblical values and the truth of the Gospel?
