Just a minor point - this for me has always been a sore point. We can
learn more from marginalized people, I think, than we have to offer. We
can talk and talk, but we rarely really listen. I run into this in the
US when I hear blanket condemnations of the south, or the 'red states,' or
whatever; very few people have actually listened, for example, to southern
preachers, or tried to learn the difference between one church and another
- and yet the same people, outside people, feel they can lead the way.
I know what you're getting at, but this troubles me.
