Intersectional theology is a way of doing theology which takes seriously the interconnectedness and interrelatedness of oppression and hierarchy. As a liberatory practice, Christians must relinquish their individual privilege and work toward the dismantling of systems of oppression, including racism, sexism, heterosexism, classism, ableism, and ageism. We need to name these intersecting oppressions as sin and move toward reimagining a community which can live out this intersectional theology. This session will explore intersectional theology in the lives of individual Christians, faith communities, and the church. We will examine what an intersectional theology might mean for the church’s internal functions—membership, baptism, communion—and also the church’s work in the world, particularly in our current political climate that has targeted marginalized people, often in the name of God.
