We don’t consider what was lost, when we allowed Europeans to develop, write and commodify scholarship and thus theology. How do we reclaim the doing of theology as a necessary act of discipleship? How do we move the issues to a place and space that takes us beyond debates, winning, being right or wrong? Of what value are Jesus’ actions of love, faith and righteousness/justice?
What about contextual Theology, Feminist Theology, Black Theology, etc? Is there such a thing as “pure theology” is that the same as white theology or Eurocentric white theology? What does Eurocentric white theology have to say about Jesus and the gospels in 2020, that can help us make sense of the world in which we live? – What does it say or not say about the biggest problems in the world, like hunger, economic inequality, systemic injustice, conflict and war, racism and religious extremism? How do we understand God’s power and healing in a time of Covid-19, so that we live in social solidarity while experiencing physical distance? How does the gospel of Jesus help us to live more faithfully these days?
