It’s hard to believe that something as foundational and timeless as theology would be so greatly impacted by location. But where we live and invest our lives shapes the way we do everything, and our attitudes toward the Bible and God are no different.

As Christians we must not simply settle for awareness of the broken people on roads far away. Instead, we as the church must move together toward a proximate, informed response that moves toward the alleviation of injustice.
…Knowing about pain and injustice from a distance is simply not enough to do anything of substance.
– Michelle Ferrigno Warren, The Power of Proximity, 16
If you wake up in the morning and the system works for you, you think it is a good and just system. You frame the way you see the world through this lens. Your lens, shaped by your personal and collective experiences, helps craft a narrative that determines the way you move forward in the world.
