|dc.description.abstract||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.||no_NO
