People have been thinking about and studying God and the Bible forever. But, for a long time, only certain people’s voices were listened to, especially within Western Christianity. European men had a lot of good things to say (and some bad things!) But the voices of others were often silenced.
We’re missing out on the voices of Black voices, indigenous voices, people of color’s voices, queer voices and more. A variety of perspectives expands our ideas about who God is, who god is for, and how God acts in this world. This year we’ll highlight some of these voices once a month on the third Sunday. You can read more about it on the blog.
On October 18th we will hear from Deacon David Rojas Martinez, who serves at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church on Lake street as the Community Engagement and Education Coordinator. I first met David as he was applying to seminary, and I find him to be one of the most beautiful and thoughtful writers I know. If you volunteered at Holy Trinity during the summer, you saw David in the first months in his new call. He is originally from Cuernavaca, but has spent large parts of his life in Indiana and Minnesota.
