Latin America: Contemporary Theology in a Conservative Environment in the Southern Andes

Simone Dollinger, who coordinates the theological education projects in Latin America for Mission 21, has been on the road a lot in recent months: Among other things, she traveled to an indigenous congregation in a Pentecostal church in the southern Andes of Peru and visited a Protestant church in Lima.

She noticed one thing above all: the environment is extremely conservative. It's not easy for anyone who campaigns for gender justice and makes domestic violence or climate change an issue. That makes it all the more important to enter into a dialog with people in the communities and work with them toward a more just world. Simone Dollinger describes in her new newsletter how our partners are doing this.

We wish you a good read and thank you for your interest and their support!
