    I do not think that participating in existing academic institutions will actually help anyone looking to seek a decolonized Christianity and this is something I tell all my friends who are kind of on the similar road as you in me in wanting to decolonize our faith. I think that seminary and other institutions can offer us other tools that can help us in our journey, but no one should go to seminary with the goal of decolonizing because those systems are inherently colonial and exist to perpetuate themselves, but it doesn’t mean that they can’t offer you something or help you in another way–it just isn’t the place that decolonization happens. In the words of Audre Lorde- The masters tools will not bring down the master’s house.
