Context and Power

Some great quotes here and context, power, and forming or making theology:
...identifying a context is not simply naming a place, group or identity, but is an activity laden with power and purpose that has theological and social dimensions. 
Moving to a new identity--Christian--then becomes a matter of constructing a notion of a new context, a Christian one, where the previous identities may or may not intersect.
