I Am Green
In his book Cross Cultural Servanthood, Duane Elmer writes:
A while back I came across a four-page book called I Am Green. On the first page was a brief text about a missionary kid (MK) who grows up in two cultures. On the second page was a big blue circle that represented one culture that the MK experiences – the home culture.
On the third page was a yellow circle respresenting the second culture the MK experiences. Mks find they are neither “blue” or “yellow.” The fourth page states, “I AM GREEN,” which is a color created by mixing blue and yellow.
I thought this was a good way to describe what will happen when you move from one country to the next. You are a mixture of both countries and cultures.
What do you think?
