Decolonizing Missions & Indigenous Gospel Perspectives
w. Brooke Prentis | July 1st - 5th | 50 AUD | Ywam Wollongong
The history of Christianity is intertwined with the history of European colonisation. This is a big part of our family story we don’t like to look at. The advantages many of us enjoy in our lives find their origins in the slaughtering, subjugation, and marginalising of Indigenous peoples. Cultures have been lost; lands have been grabbed and exploited: much of this in the name of Christ. But where is Christ in all of this? Where is the hope? We’ll explore how the radical love of Christ can bring beauty from these ashes as we together engage in healing justice.
