Week 6 – Wednesday

It has been difficult to think about post-colonialism in context of the micro for the local parish or denomination.  I have been struggling with how it plays out in obvious ways in which we can learn to be more faithful or mindful of our faithful interactions.  Some of the post-colonial issues are easy in terms of the the denomination:  As an Anglican, the colonialism tied to the Queen Mum; modernity and its roots; “old money”, etc.  Our community, however, looks a little different than the macro, so seeing the integration or effects of post-colonialism in the midst of our community is a bit more elusive.
