Die gemeente as huishouding van God

Christelle Bekker, H. Jurgens Hendriks


The article is an eco-feministic interpretation of James. It has the following
hypotheses: the transformation of the patriarchal family is the key to the
transformation of society. If friendship is the baseline structure of the relationship
between people who understand their identity as being the missional body of Christ,
equality and hospitality will result, creating space for congregations to be places
where healing can take place and people can experience freedom. The concept
household is defined and the implications of being a household of God, based on key
concepts in James, provide more than twenty parameters for a theory of ministry.
