I am excited to lead a training session at the Radically Rooted: #SummitforChange by Sojourners. My session is called, “Intersectional Theology” and I will draw from my forthcoming book, Intersectional Theology co-written with Dr. Susan Shaw. 

 

THE SUMMIT IS A GATHERING OF 350 LEADERS COMMITTED TO CHANGING THE WORLD THROUGH FAITH AND JUSTICE.

This diverse gathering creates an opportunity for building relationships and cross-sector collaboration. Through inspirational main-stage conversations, small group forums, and shared meals, The Summit provides a space for leaders to find connection to their peers and hope for the future.

The Summit 2018 | June 13-15 | Washington, D.C.

Intersectional theology is a way of doing theology which takes seriously the interconnectedness and interrelatedness of oppression and hierarchy. As a liberatory practice, Christians must relinquish their individual privilege and work toward the dismantling of systems of oppression, including racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism, ableism, and ageism.
We need to name these intersecting oppressions as sin and move toward reimagining a community which can live out this intersectional theology. This session will explore intersectional theology in the lives of individual Christians, faith communities, and the church. We will examine what an intersectional theology might mean for the church’s internal functions—membership, baptism, communion—and also the church’s work in the world, particularly in our current political climate that has targeted marginalized people, often in the name of God.
