A theology that moves beyond liberation.
January 10, 2014
As a liberation theologian, I am so inspired by this notion of "embrace." The question could legitimately be asked, "After liberation - then what?" J. Deotis Roberts hinted at this necessary trajectory by coupling liberation and reconciliation. Embrace moves beyond even this, in that it addresses the need for those who have been liberated and reconciled to become vulnerable on an existential and experiential level. I am reminded of philosopher William Desmond's notion of "porosity" in this regard. This is a relevant work for multiple reasons, for multiple cultures in the 21st century. It can do much to promote a metaxological, agapeic, beloved community.
