Version 1.1 – September 13, 2021
"Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth... And the one who was seated on the throne said, 'See, I am making all things new.'"
"No one educates anyone else nor do we educate ourselves, we educate one another in communion in the context of living in this world."
Paulo Freire, JD, PhD
"If your anti-racist work does not embrace an intentionally intersectional approach to liberation and justice then you just as well call it anti-human. Racism, classism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, ableism - all life-threatening, all disastrous for Black people."
Rev. Dr. Pamela R. Lightsey
"There can be no salvation without liberation."
Ada Maria Isasi-Diaz, PhD
"The Bible presents liberation—salvation—in Christ as the total gift, which… gives the whole process of liberation its deepest meaning and its complete and unforeseeable fulfillment. Liberation can thus be approached as a single salvific process."
Fr. Gustavo Gutiérrez, A Theology of Liberation
"If you have come to help me, you are wasting your time. If you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together."
Aboriginal Activists Group Queensland, 1970s
"Whatever else the true preaching of the word would need to include... It would need to be a word of solidarity, healing and love in situations of brokenness and despair and a disturbing and troubling word of justice to those who wish to protect their privilege by exclusion. "
Letty M. Russell, ThD
