    Contextualization: How to Translate the Message Without Changing It - A Conversation with Benjamin Morrison Discussing Ministry in Eastern Europe

    Contextualization: How to Translate the Message Without Changing It - A Conversation with Benjamin Morrison Discussing Ministry in Eastern Europe

    In this episode Nick Cady sits down with Benjamin Morrison, pastor of Calvary Chapel Svitlovodsk, Ukraine, as well as the coordinator for City to City Ukraine and a member of the leadership of City to City Europe, to discussion cross-cultural ministry and the topic of contextualization.

    When we "contextualize" the gospel, or any other biblical message, do we run the risk of changing it? What is the goal and purpose of contextualization, and how can we be sure that we are doing it well, without watering down the message on the one hand, nor adding unbiblical elements on the other? 

    In this episode Ben and I share stories from our experiences in Eastern Europe, where I served for 10 years in Hungary, and where Ben has served for 19 years in Ukraine.

    Hermeneutics: How Do We Correctly Interpret What the Bible Says? - with Benjamin Morrison & Craig Babcock

    Hermeneutics: How Do We Correctly Interpret What the Bible Says? - with Benjamin Morrison & Craig Babcock

    In this episode Nick Cady and special co-host Craig Babcock speak with Benjamin Morrison, lead pastor of Calvary Chapel Svitlovodsk, Ukraine and coordinator for City to City Ukraine, about the topic of hermeneutics: the interpretation of texts, particularly the Bible. Hermeneutics and biblical interpretation is the focus of Ben's masters studies at London School of Theology, Nick's alma mater. 
    What is hermeneutics, and why is it important? Can't we just read the Bible without having to worry about interpretation?
    As Ben shows us, everyone who reads the Bible has a hermeneutics and we are all interpreters, the question is: are you a good and faithful interpreter of the biblical text? If, as Ben points out, not all hermeneutics are equally good, then how can we determine which ones are better than others and how do we identify our own hermeneutics in order to examine whether they are good or not? We discuss these questions in this episode.
