About a dozen years ago I read “White Man’s Gospel” by Richard Twiss and began to understand (began to understand is not the same as understood) that Jesus wanted to live in my culture and in the culture of the people I was serving. Twiss’ voice was controversial, and still is.
This weekend he was in Washington DC for the National Prayer Breakfast and he died of a heart attack. As one writer has said, the world is not complete without him.
Here’s a link to a short video of Twiss sharing his passion for worshiping Christ the Creator within his own culture.
