QRT #135 – “Quaker Youth Ministry and Theopraxis in a Multicultural Context,” by Nim Njuguna

Nim Njuguna writes a response in “Quaker Youth Ministry and Theopraxis in a Multicultural Context” to the ideas in the previous article about Theologia, a summer institute for high schoolers, influenced by Quaker values. Emphasizing that all theology is contextual and Quakers attempt to focus on that of God in each one, Njuguna encourages Friends to deeper critical reflection on our dominant culture as we engage in multicultural youth (or other) ministry. He echoes the call by the Theologia leaders to learn about God from young Friends. Read his article when you order QRT #135.

Pull quote: “Theology needs to be contextualised taking into account the Word, tradition, culture and social change in an increasingly multi-ethnic and urban society. … Despite our declarations of good intent on social justice and our genuine heartfelt commitment motivated by our Quaker values, inequality and marginalisation persist even among us. … These young Theologians are not a homogenous group and issues of class, race, gender, disability, sexuality, etc. form the basis of their lived experience.” —Nim Njuguna, “Quaker Youth Ministry and Theopraxis in a Multicultural Context”]
