Some Further Context

I realized that it might be helpful to know two things to give some further context to the the last two posts, here and here. First, is to understand that I am fairly deeply influenced by Walter Wink and William Stringfellow(specifically his works Imposters of God: Inquiries into Favorite Idols, and An Ethic for Christians and Other Aliens in a Strange Land) around issues of the Powers, Nation States, and Image and Idolatry. Second is that I am currently reading Colossians Remixed: Subverting the Empire, by Brian Walsh and Sylvia Keesmaat. Of course if you are unfamiliar with most or all of these it is probably no help to you, but I encourage you to give them a read if you haven't.
