In this post, Dr. Lindquist offers some thoughts on developing the skill of asking good questions and raises the question of how to treat moral issues at an organizational policy level.
Hi Theresa. Thanks for this post, and thanks for reminder and link to the article. That was one of the earlier things we discussed, and it is nice to revisit it because it is so useful here.
I really like the idea of the missionary writing the consent in their own language, or at least having the missionary’s position incorporated into the documents.
Well done, Theresa! I thought you tried to cover a lot of things there, some of which we have talked about in other blogs in the past. But you got me thinking about a particular issue that revolves around the theology or missiology of suffering. I have suggested to a number of mission agencies that they intentionally have missionaries take into account the reality of the hardship of cross-cultural ministry, and the fact that there may be very bad outcomes at certain times and in certain places.
