  1. Field worker? Pastor? I share your distaste for the term, missionary. I believe we can share our skills and our faith in other countries as long as we acknowledge the inevitable cultural baggage that we carry on our journeys.

  2. mutatis mutandis Abbotsford! The difference you highlight draws out the two-way nature of the exchange, kind of like the early Church Fathers/Mothers in societies deeply impacted by Greek categories. Theology changed as a result and it must change for us as we learn, challenge, and then…learn some more! God Bless!
