Show Notes (from june 2010, first posted june 26th 2010):
A discussion during the KW Peoples Summit,
We will explore the revolutionary context of the ministry of Jesus by giving historical perspective, deflating a few common misconceptions and celebrating the one who overturned the tables of the moneychangers. In viewing the New Testament as world-creating, empire eroding storytelling we hope to shine a light on actions and perspectives taught by Jesus, that can be used today, to disarm the powers.
Build your skills with this holistic approach to intentional world changing.
King James would hate this workshop. Safe and open to anyone, its revolutionary simplicity!
presenters: Kevin Guenther is a Master of Theological Studies student at Conrad Grebel.
Ian Stumpf is a Spiritual Care Giver at various medical facilities and is active in his community.
Both are organizing resistance to the upcoming G20 summit.
The KW Peoples Summit is running from May 3rd to June 16th 2010 and features panel discussions, workshops, authors, music, movies, and poetry themed around the upcoming G8 and G20 summits and convergences which are taking place in Huntsville and Toronto from the 18th to the 27th of June. Working with veteran community organizers, faith, youth, and cultural leaders, academics and students, the KWPS aims to present a well rounded understanding of the impacts caused through the policies formed, and the ideologies advanced, at the undemocratic G8 and G20 leaders summits. The KWPS hopes to mobilize citizens in and around Waterloo region in the quest for social justice.
