Thea/ologies of Liberation – Rev. Kharma Amos
 
“Liberation Theology” originated in Latin America (ca. 1950s and 60s) from theologians concerned with the social plight of the poor. It revolutionized theological discourse in the global Christian church.  But, it hasn’t stopped there.  Since then, various strains of liberation theologies have emerged in multiple traditions that build on the common foundation of liberation theology (which flips the perspectives from which we think about the most important things in life). Today, liberation thea/ologies include those traditional LA roots, as well as theological reflections from feminist, womanist, indigenous, queer, post-colonial, disability, and many other perspectives. Let’s begin to explore how some of these ideas might help us think more broadly about praxis-based spirituality.

Leggo my Ego – Rev. Kharma Amos
 
Our relationship with our egos is one of the most important, least spoken about relationships in our world. This is the key to self-confidence, humility, and the ways in which we engage change, learning, and growth. Let’s have a proper think about how this functions and how each one of us is doing with regard to nurturing this unavoidable relationship.
 
The Social Justice Committee has chosen Peoples Place to receive funds from the collection that are not designated to fulfill pledges.
