The self given by the Other “other” is indeed the ‘anthropological earthquake’ that James refers to, Rich. Our “I” becoming a “we” is indeed a shock to our original sense of identity….”What Jesus inaugurated was the possibility of a being together in which there is, in principle, no social “other”, no group, nation, ethnicity, gender or any other identity we create in a binary way, that is not able to be brought into the gathering, the ekklesia, the new people of God”. I am most interested in hearing your reflections upon reading “Word into Silence”.
