“He [Jesus] disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.” — Colossians 2:15
Somau Garia culture is what some call “shame-based”. Saving face is of high value in social status and function. A few years ago, a clan neighboring our house in Uria Village burglarized it. Most expressed profound shame when I visited last year–a level of shame that will likely require ritual to make right. Ask God to break through the pain and shame of wrongdoing, that Jesus’ grace and penetrate Somau Garia culture. Jesus shamed the spiritual powers that he defeated, not the people he came to save.
