How to work towards racial, gender, and ethnic justice
We live in a time of great racial strife and global conflict. How do we work toward healing, reconciliation, and justice among all people, regardless of race or gender? In "Embracing the Other" Grace Ji-Sun Kim argues that it is possible only through God's Spirit.Working from a feminist Asian perspective, Kim develops a new constructive global pneumatology that works toward gender and racial-ethnic justice. Drawing on the concept of spiritbreath in Asian and indigenous cultures, she reimagines the divine as Spirit God who is restoring "shalom" in the world. This Spirit God concept, Kim says, provides a holistic understanding of both God and humans that extends beyond skin color, culture, religion, or power within society. Through the power of Spirit God our brokenness is healed and we can truly love and embrace the other.
