We are continuing our "Free from -isms" series looking at the larger concept of Critical Theory that seeks to set free groups of people who are oppressed by hidden systems of power in society. One of the positive contributions we find from Critical Theory is the idea of activism--that people raise awareness of social issues for the disadvantaged in order to effect positive changes in society. In culture today, many activists see politics as the method to effect positive change. Jesus shows us how by grace, he made a difference in the life of an unnamed woman in Mark 5. May we find loving motivation from him to care for those who are forgotten or are in need of social care.
