One week to go!

A week from today we'll be on our way!

In the meantime, the academic course related to the trip, The History of Christianity in East Africa, is underway online. Today we start with a reading from a missiologist about how Christians in different times and places express their Christianity in culturally relevant yet faithful ways, and how the broad scope of the church across the centuries and across time is needed to even begin to express the fullness of God. A second reading is by Jomo Kenyatta, providing a sociological description of Kikuyu culture, the dominant culture in the area where we'll be spending most of our time, around Kijabe.

It's a busy time, but we hope the intense, thoughtful preparation this week will pay off next week to help us understand some of the things we're seeing.
