CMS Conference at St Bart's: "Shame, Honour, The Gospel and Mission"

On October 28, from 9AM-3PM, St Bart's will be hosting the annual CMS Toowoomba Conference. There will be three speakers: Wes Redgen (Senior Lecturer at QTC), T (one of our mission partners from South-East Asia), and Keith Birchley (PNG).

Many non-western cultures are based on the values of shame and honour. Shame and honour were also dominant features in New Testament cultures. Understanding shame and honour not only gives us insight into the New Testament, it also equips us better to engage other non-western cultures with the gospel. Hear from Keith Birchley and T how they walk this tightrope, as they explain and explore the practicalities of sharing the gospel in shame and honour cultures of PNG and South East Asia.
