Relationships are Never Zero-Sum: Mutuality and Care in Jesus’ Vision of God’s Domain

October 24 @ 9:15 am - 10:15 am

This session will consider the relational dynamics of the “kingdom of God,” the central metaphor of Jesus’ message, as portrayed in the Gospels. Christians in positions of cultural dominance have often envisioned the kingdom of God as a territory that God’s followers should build or enlarge. Jesus, by contrast, described a realm of God’s justice and love that his disciples were invited to receive as a gift, enter in a child-like posture, and accept as a reality within and among them. The session will challenge imperialistic patterns of Christian engagement in the world. In place of a zero-sum approach to building the kingdom of God, it will explore a missional “math” of mutuality and care. This class is led by Dr. Janel Kragt Bakker, Associate Professor of Mission and Culture at Memphis Theological Seminary.
