Reflections on the Face-to-face Mission in Hyderabad

Ben Ong was recently awarded a scholarship to attend a  Council for World Mission conference in Hyderabad, India. This Face-to-face mission has had a significant impact on him already. 

Here is a quote from Ben in an article just published by CWM:

As someone who lives in a place of privilege, a Pākeha (colonizer) New Zealander in postgraduate education, it is natural for me to be holistically critical of the societies we compose and the practices we are determined to live (by).” Whether it is assessing the true cost of our food by accounting for the distance it has travelled to make it to our dining tables, the ecological and indigenous impact of clothing, manufacturing and mining companies and their treatment of workers; or the treatment of animals in the cosmetic industry, it is easy to criticize the way we have become so determined to self-determine from our individual standpoints.” Said Benjamin Ong, in his reflection on the global ecological crisis during the Council for World Mission (CWM)’s Face to Face 2018 Programme.
