"When history and religion are exclusively taught from the vantage point of the people in power--which is almost always the case--we can't see the reality right in front of our noses. We live out of a bias that is unrecognized: privilege and easy access to privilege."
As we explore the theme of ancestry, it may be incumbent upon us to revisit our Christian roots. Many of us come from Christian backgrounds; many consider ourselves to be Christians in exile. What is there in our Christian ancestry that we might be able to rescue from the pains and disappointments of our life stories? Is there a place for the Christian god in our spiritual lives?
This month's theme: Ancestors
Speaker: Pedro Sandin
