Theology from Below
This week is our weeklong intensive for our Urban Youth Ministry Certificate. I love this week here at Fuller as I learn from the youth workers and faculty in the program.
Kris Rocke is a guest lecturer in the training. I had the chance to sit in on one of his lectures (better described as a discussion) yesterday on Theology from Below. Some of Kris’ thoughts are described in this article in Christianity Today so for those of you not in the training, you can still learn from Kris.
Here are a few sentences from the article to whet your appetite: “Reading the Bible with those we serve means we learn to take the stained glass off the text of Scripture and begin reading from the perspective of those who have been crushed by life. It’s an adventure in mining good news out of the holes of Scripture that the church typically refuses to climb down into.”
