Gathering Our Selves: Spiritual Renewal for the Global Majority 

An edited collection of faith formation resources explicitly for people colonialized by white cultural norms via educational systems and governmental, civic, and religious institutions. In the tradition of liberation theology, the collection uses the evocative power of literature, poetry, visual arts, and storytelling as a way to reshape stories of isolation and Otherness into a balm for healing, community, and sacred living. The collection is edited by Dr. Mark A. Hicks, Director of the Fahs Collaborative and Angus MacLean Professor of Religious Education.
