Over a million Americans participate annually in short term missions, study abroad and student exchange programs but fail to experience permanent spiritual change. Multitudes proclaim, What a trip I ll never be the same. Wrong. Research indicates that short-term missions have minimal effect on the spiritual lives of participants unless intentional debriefing occurs. Yet, in our hurry-sick society, this debriefing is rare. Now What? Spiritual Discernment For Cultural Encounters is a spiritual formation workbook that meets this need. The book uses a mixture of reflection questions and Ignatian principles to help those who have had a cultural experience reflect on the past, internalize the effect and address the future."
