Shades of culture

Many shades of colours
Many shades of colours

Ever think about how many colours there are in life? Each primary colour (red, blue, yellow) contrasts significantly with the other primary colours.  But then combining them, creates a brand new colour! Red & blue make purple while blue & yellow make green. Even combinations of similar colours create different shades of that colour, all of them unique and valuable when painting a picture. So it is with language and culture. Languages provide the unique “shades” that make a culture beautiful. Since that’s true, Papua New Guinea is a masterpiece with over 800 languages! Each language focuses their stories through the lens of their words. Pray for PNG as they continue to put their words on paper through the language development and Bible translation effort.
