The Who, How and What of Remembering God

A Response to Brian Haymes and Kyle Gingerich Hiebert


  • Fran Porter The Queen's Foundation


In response to Misremembering God and the task of remembering God it proposes, I engage with the three forms of misremembering that Brian Haymes and Kyle Gingerich Hiebert identify and contend that who remembers (in terms of our location in various power relations) and how they remember (in terms of acknowledging our Christendom heritage) will shape what of God is remembered. I also suggest a hermeneutic of suspicion about the notion of unity can remind us that, contrary to the harmony often associated with the notion of unity, to consider theological unity is to live with discomfort and disturbance.
