Inculturation and contextualisation are familiar themes in mission when it comes to crossing cultures. They usually conjure up in the mind’s eye mission work in foreign lands or at least among people distinct because of ethnicity or religion. However the Church has been much slower to apply these mission insights to home base. This lecture will explore what it might look like to inculturate the gospel in the West, or as John Taylor put it in the Primal Vision to ‘do it from the inside’.
