About the Basque Country
The Basque Country is complicated. Some of it is in Spain. And some of it is in France. But many people wouldn't consider themselves Spanish or French.
Of the 3 million people who live in the Basque Country, only 1 million or so are Basque speakers. But those who do speak Basque consider the language to be a very significant part of their identity.
Basque people are traditionally Catholic, and yet on any given Sunday, less than 6% of people attend mass, and less than that have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
These facts lead us to ask several questions. What does it mean to be Basque? What does it mean to follow Jesus? And finally, what would it look like to be Basque AND follow Jesus?
