Thank you so much, Douglas, for your response and for reading. I really appreciate you.
I agree our mindset in the west is much too individualistic. It’s another thing I’ve been pondering. Even in Christianity it often feels like it’s about our “personal relationship with God.” Yet, belief in God in the Bible was regularly expressed in community, and by entire people groups.
I found the documentary on YouTube you mentioned. Will definitely check it out. Thank you!
