MetadataShow full item record
In doing this research I came to be in highest concern of the foreigners Christianity in the foreign land. They came with their culture and perspective of their own with their world view. Some did not have the orientation course of the country they are entering or going to live in. Some had a small background orientation these groups are students, workers, family intermarriages etc. Another group like refugees and Asylum seekers and others individual who migrate for different reasons, they find themselves in a culture they didn’t learn before. They get culture shock, and culture clashes and experience rejection and have difficulty to integrate. Therefore I find important to pursue this research as to find some ways how to handle this difficult of cultural issue of globalised world. The aim of this research is to investigate how migrant people can adapt and learn through self awareness in the new culture different from their own. By sharing their experience of acquiring knowledge of integration in cultural diversity. And see how the Church of Norway relate and accommodate the migrant in their churches. Are they willing to make some changes for the sake of accommodating many groups and cultures? The focus of my research is to understand the different perspectives of the participants as well as to explain different strategies or ways which participants employed while adapting new culture and integrations of the community and church as well. How the Christian culture is used as the common culture and tool among Christians. All Christians no matter what color, or culture we all have Christian culture from the scriptures. Furthermore the study used qualitative research. In literature review some theories were used such as observation and participation, conversation, coexistence and compassion action aid theories. However the study shows that both parties the Church of Norway and Migrant lead Churches are doing their best they can to adjust themselves and accommodate each other in cultural diversity and inclusion although there are some challenges. Inclusiveness is one of the important features toward question of integration. As the matter of fact all people are created in the image of God by the Creator. The unity of the Churches in Oslo is crucial at this point. We cannot avoid it, to relate to one another and learn from one another and integrate from one another.
