Flavours of culture

Taste of culture
Tastes so good!

Building on yesterday’s theme, shades of culture, cultures have different flavours too… and for that, we all should be glad. Language is the spice that keeps cultures alive. Each language has a unique vocabulary. Sometimes what a culture deems important, is reflected by the many different words that are used for a certain object. For example , the word banana is, well,  banana, right?  In some areas of Papua New Guinea, there may be as many as 30 different words to represent “banana”. Languages provide the vivid flavours that enhance our cultures. With over 800 languages, PNG provides the world with a real feast! Pray for PNG to taste and see God’s word in all of their heart languages.
