As a bi-literate Hispanic (a 1.5 Hispanic) living in two worlds, both the Hispanic and the American, I find if fascinating what is happening in the United States in regards to demographics. Recent demographics reveal some important facts in the Hispanic culture. These have implications when it comes how we approach and minister to them […]
We are on our third week of living in Tyler, Texas and we have pretty much settled. Our lives have begun to create the new routines and to adjust to the environment. We are all happy to be here and enjoy the different perspective of this city. More importantly, we are excited to be part […]
Here are all postings relating to Hispanic culture. These are characteristics that for the most part are true. There are exceptions and changes do happen over time. Yet, as a second generation Hispanic myself I know these are true in our family. These are not only helpful for non-Hispanics who wish to understand us better […]
Another cultural characteristic of Hispanic culture is food. There is no question that Hispanics love food. The saying, “Barriga llena corazón contento” (stomach full, happy heart) has the idea that when you have eaten well, you feel happy and satisfied. It reflects the Hispanic culture’s attitude that food has a special place in daily living […]
Another characteristic of Hispanic culture, one which is often misunderstood is “pasión” or passion. This is not limited to what we associate with romance (After all the Spanish language is part of the Romance languages) but more in general and how they embrace life.

One very important aspect of Hispanic culture is “personalismo” or the idea of being personal. This is an attribute that goes against being impersonal or individualistic which is prevalent in our American culture. “Personalismo” is seen in every aspect of Hispanic culture. It is evident in the family which extends itself to more than just […]
Hispanic culture follows traditional roles (“roles” is spelled the same in Spanish but the “e” [and s] is pronounced with the equivalent of the short sound in English). Normally, the father is the bread winner outside of the home. He works really hard to provide for his family. Usually, this involves long days and coming home […]
In Hispanic culture, the Spanish language is considered just as important as all other values. Not speaking Spanish, which usually happens with grand kids, is anathema and will incur the title of “Gringo” (a slang term for White American). The idea is that you are forgetting your language (your roots) and do not want to be […]
Recently I began to think and pray upon the possibility of planting a new church. A church for Hispanics whose most dominant language is English. I grew up in a Spanish speaking church and consider myself a second generation Hispanic. I am bicultural and biliterate. But as the years have passed I notice that I […]
