First of all, this blog caught my eye because I have actually met the author totally outside of The Baton Exchange. And she is passionate about Jesus and her family. Rachel's blog also caught my eye because of the topic. When we transition from our college bubbles into the "real world" and the workplace, we'll encounter a number of new cultures, people and behaviors. I've been learning a lot about cross-cultural missions and the reality is, to communicate the Gospel effectively, we need to embrace Paul's strategy of "becoming a slave to everyone" to win souls back from bondage. But that doesn't mean adopting sin patterns. It leaves us with the question of, how do we embrace other cultures and patterns without embracing sin? We seek to transform darkeness into light through the power of the Holy Spirit and it starts with our daily fight to stay close to Christ.
