This presentation by Werner Mischke was given as a webinar with visionSynergy on 16 November 2017. Werner brings to the surface the problem of honor competition, rivalry, and honor status in the New Testament church. He considers how this applies to global Christian mission. He proposes as a solution: the Spirit-empowered solution of “giving honor” (Rom 12:10; 1 Cor 12:21–26) across cultures and across different levels of social status. The material explores various ways that “giving honor” can help make our own networks or partnerships more healthy relationally—and more fruitful for the gospel. A strong emphasis is given to the practice of empathic listening—“listening with your heart”.
