    When you think of these cultures, which one "clicks" better with you?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    It could be we are more familiar with the Greek way of thinking. Our New Testaments are based on Greek. Is that what you're meaning?

    *Sigh* Sometimes I doubt my ability to communicate.

    Let me try again:
    As an American, which culture is most easy for you to realte to? For example, if you have a person from each of these cultures, and there is no language gap, which friend do you get along with most easily?

    I don't know. I get along fine with Greeks. I usually end up bickering with Russians (obviously). Don't know any of the others.

    Of that list, as to what is "relevant" (in what context ??? ) to me, I'd have to go with Russian just because I'm 1/2 Russian :)

    I like Koreans (big surprise there, huh?) I've liked most of the Russians that I've met. I have one pal who's Romanian, and we get on fine. Never really met any Greeks or Bulgarians. I like Canadians. I have a neighbor who's Persian and he's a pretty good old boy. Back in the day a couple of my buddies were Chinese (and they probably still are, but I haven't seen 'em in a long time) and they were cool. I even like some Yankees. <Evil Grin>

    There's a truly foxy Ukrainian girl who works at the bank around the corner. If only I were single, and 30 years younger, and a lot better looking......:sorry:

    I didn't notice the flag! Sorry! Yes I know Ukrainians have that whole "national identity" thing to work out. Who wants to know who he is? If he looks in the mirror, all he'll see is a sinner! And then he'll want the Savior.

    Ok, so the identity dilemma is a good thing.

    OOOHhhh!! now we're getting somewhere. Cultural relevancy is defined by similarity of lifestyle and material amenities?

    What he said - oh hang on, I'm, 1/4 Scottish. Well, just the French then. :D ;)

    One of my sister-in-laws is Greek, they got married, and my nephews were baptised in a Greek orthodox church, so I guess that is the culture I know something about from the list. But then I'm not American, so you weren't asking me. :doh:
