I’ll be giving a couple of sessions at this conference under the title, “How to be Saved: Recieving Good News from the Margins”
Within the Church we often hear the idea that we can be good news to those who are oppressed, marginalized and silenced by society. But what if those on the fringes actually have good news for us? What if they help to expose the reality of a sickness deep in the heart of the structures we promote and protect? In these sessions Peter will ask whether those on the fringes of society might actually be our prophets. Truth tellers herelding a good news for us by bringing to light hidden evils we are loath to face. In short, we will explore whether our engagement with those on the margins might, if we cultivate ears to hear, lead to our salvation.
