Mutuality as a Postcolonial Praxis for Mission, Ecclesiology (2014)
In an era in North-Atlantic societies of an increasing move away from religious affiliation and practice, churches have attempted to reimagine what it means to be Christian communities of faith with an eye on creating a spaciousness for the so-called non-believer. However, the same sort of intentionality has not been applied to what liberation theologians have called the ‘non-person’, those who live at the margins of society. Drawing from the conceptual framework of postcolonial theory, this essay presents mutuality as a praxis for mission, seeking to explore how ecclesial identity and authority, worship practices and service ministries might be reimagined accordingly.
