I was just given the information on a new website that has profoundly impacted me. It is called called Geography Of Grace It is a resource for grassroots urban leaders doing “theology from below.”
Center for Transforming Mission and Mile High Ministry in Denver have teamed up to create this new resource. Scott Dewey and Sam Trujillo from Denver are the managing editors of the site. They have had lots of experience with this sort of thing and have led us into this very thoughtful and creative effort to actually do theology from below with a world wide network of grassroots leaders.
I was particularly impacted by the entry Table of Hope with the painting of Jesus with the street children in the Philippines. It is often hard for us to remember that Jesus identifies as much if not more with children like these than he does with those of us who are wealthy. The kingdom of God truly does belong to children such as these.
I think that it also impacted me because of my recent reading of Danielle Speakman’s book Nothing But a Thief that I mentioned in a previous blog.
