Cross-Cultural Servanthood by Duane Elmer

...
Today, I'd like to share a "fable" from the book Cross-Cultural Servanthood by Duane Elmer.
A typhoon had temporarily stranded a monkey on an island. In a secure, protected place on the shore, while waiting for the raging waters to recede, he spotted a fish swimming against the current. It seemed obvious to the monkey that the fish was struggling and in need of assistance. Being of kind heart, the monkey resolved to help the fish. Cross-Cultural Servanthood by Duane Elmer
A tree precariously dangled over the very spot where the fish seemed to be struggling. At considerable risk to himself, the monkey moved far out on a limb, reached down and snatched the fish from the threatening waters. Immediately scurrying back to the safety of his shelter, he carefully laid the fish on dry ground.
...
Duane Elmer explains the moral of the fable like this: "The story does not tell us the degree of humility or arrogance the monkey possessed.

Elmer, Duane H. (2006). Cross-cultural servanthood: Serving the world in christlike humility. Downers Grove, IL: IVP Books.
Note: Elmer's book is an excellent guide to helping think this through in a cross-cultural setting. He outlines the pilgrimage we must take if we are to truly serve others. The journey starts with Openness ("the ability to welcome people into your presence and make them feel safe"), to Acceptance("communicating respect for others"), Trusting, Learning ("seeking information that changes you") Understanding, and then finally Serving ("you can't serve someone you don't understand"). Elmer presents each step of the journey as an essential building block to the next.

In the 1980s my wife and I were profoundly blessed to have Dr. Duane Elmer as our mentor and adviser at Missionary Internship in Michigan. Duane believed in us, invested in us, and went out of his way to help us. I doubt we would be in mission work today if he was not part of our lives. An excellent teacher, Duane's methods include simulations, small groups, lots of activity, discussion, and reflection. In recent years he has done a great deal of research on how the human brain functions. Retired from teaching at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Dr. Elmer continues to teach, write, travel and learn. He inspires me to live well and aim high.
