Cross-cultural worship reflects Revelation 7:9 eternity

RICHMOND, Va., (BP) -- Missionaries sometimes say that worshiping in a cross-cultural context is a dress rehearsal for a Revelation 7:9 eternity. As a cross-cultural worker in South Asia, Rachel Cohen agrees. But if she is honest, sometimes the rehearsal is pretty awkward. Living in South Asia among a culture whose worship is loud, long, and -- perhaps most uncomfortable for a Baptist -- moving. Many South Asian Christians love to worship with what they call "action songs," and they encourage enthusiastic participation from everyone, no exceptions.
