Unit 3 Destination Discussion - Guardians of the River
Return to the epigraph of the Brubaker essay, cited in the Guardians of the River Destination Reflection for this unit (below). Invite participants to share the ways they would make a similar statement based in the language of their own religious convictions.
“The spirituality of life, which is basic to our Christian faith, is intrinsically at odds with prevailing political-economic arrangements and policies that are creating and exacerbating human suffering. Therefore, we believe that nothing less than a fundamental shift in political-economic paradigms is necessary for humankind to become instruments of God in striving for the vision of just, participatory and sustainable communities.”
