In this episode Justin and Stephen review the history of the culture concept and how evolutionary interpretations of cultures eventually were replaced by more helpful values-based approaches to intercultural relations. They also reflect on the importance of recognizing good faith actors when their are different interpretations of text or events. Justin asks about the relevance of Stephen's study for missiology. 

The hosts also talk about the struggles of being present for their kids while balancing important tasks, homesickness (Heimweh), and perceptions about the US church from a distance. Tune in to join the conversation!
