"Better Understanding Asian Culture."
Dr. Ben Shin
Synopsis - "Better Understanding Asian Culture."
Asian culture has a long and rich history with many layers and levels to unpack. This may seem confusing and challenging especially to the Westernized person who worships in an Asian church. The goal of this workshop is to explain the basic tenets of Asian culture and how to navigate relationally well within this framework.
