I spoke of four cultural issues, or one might describe them as phases, that people in cross cultural situations might experience. I discussed this primarily from the point of view of the those in the "sub-dominant" or minority culture. These phases are similar to what missionaries tend to go through, except that Western missionaries don't usually have the same threat to their core understanding of themselves as those whose ethnic or cultural group has been oppressed, or who live with a constant challenge to an attack on their cultural selves.
Well, that about sums it up. May the Lord help us to take heed to the ministry that we have received, that we fulfill it; as the Apostle Paul challenged Timothy.
