    I really appreciate your reading of Cone as “a call to reimagine the work of theology, one that we all need to do each in our own way. And for those with eyes to see, there is an astonishingly open, wide field of play and work to which we are all invited.”

    One thing I’m wrestling with is how to even imagine a theology that is liberated from the constructs of whiteness. The pressures of white normativity and supremacy are everywhere, limiting our imaginations, as you say. I’m grieved when I realize how difficult it is for me to imagine a robust way to think about God that isn’t complicit with or in reaction to whiteness. So I’m eager to see more and more people join in that work of imagination, to come to that open, wide field of play of envisioning a theology that is truly liberative for us all.
