JUST FAITH AND ACTION: A BI-MONTHLY THEOLOGICAL REFLECTION FROM THE WASHINGTON OFFICE ON AFRICA
A pilgrimage toward power

The newsletter discusses the Servant Leadership School of the Church of the Savior. These classed do not treat members as consumers of theological lectures, but rather call upon people to reflect on various themes surrounding the question of power. It's doses of Latin American liberation theology, South African contextual theology, and Paulo Freire all wrapped in one. Debt cancellation is prophetic, debt relief is mere accommodation; huge appropriation for AIDS in Africa is prophetic, figures that seem somehow more practical are accommodation.
