Honour and shame are becoming increasingly prominent in Western culture and theology. Failure to adhere to society’s conventions coupled with public media forums can subject a person to public shaming. How does the gospel address this aspect of the human condition and behaviour? This event explores the nature of honour/shame in Scripture, culture, relationships, and ministry pertinent to the Irish story. As our towns and cities embrace those from non-Western backgrounds, where honour and shame have been a part of the culture for centuries, how can we be equipped to minister to an increasingly diverse church? And what about our own Irish story, where shame and honour (or lack thereof) has had its shaping force in our history? The format will be a mix of lecture, panel discussion, and Q & A. Come along for an introduction and conversation about honour and shame and its implications for a more fruitful ministry and mission.
