About the Resource
God is the supreme Community-of-Love. When the people who claim to be drawn together by that Community and to represent the purposes of that Community disregard the communal nature of God and the action of the Spirit, we fail to live out the Good News of God’s good creation. Drawing on theological insights primarily from Latin America, this session invites participants into a renewed vision and presence in a world that belongs to that Community-of-Love.
