After Alan Black had introduced us to 1 Corinthians 4, LCM worker Charlotte Mayhew talked about shame and what it means in the context of a shame-honour culture. In such cultures the family or wider community is worth more than the individual and an individual has to take care not to bring “shame” to their community by non-acceptable behaviour.
In the afternoon we travelled to Vauxhall to visit the local Christian Centre. On our way from the station to the centre it started to rain heavily, so we all got very wet. Unfortunately because of the weather the planned walk in the area had to be cancelled and we were served coffee and tea instead and worked on some tasks.
Trying to get the shoes dry.
