Hebrew Israelites, Christmas Resistance, the Danger of a Single Story
KTF Weekly Newsletter
As we “wait” this Advent season, one additional resource we want to point you towards is this devotional by Reclaiming My Theology host, Brandi Miller. With all that is coming at us, we hope that this, along with our newsletter, ground you where God has His attention fixed — on the poor, marginalized, and the least of these. He sees all of us, knows our needs, and sent His Son to respond.
So, here are our resources for the week!

This winsome piece featured in Plough, the online publication of the Bruderhof community, briefly profiles a Ugandan bishop, Zac Niringiye, and his message of unity and solidarity with the poor and marginalized. Rather than encouraging isolated acts of charity, Niringiye teaches that we are to enter into the lives of the poor in a transformative process of mutual liberation. “Help poor people? Who is the one who needs help here? It’s you. Poverty is not the problem,” he insists. “Greed is the problem.” “People don’t need projects,” he further elaborates, “They need you.
