Peacemaking on the Boundary

  • Matthew Lon Weaver
Part of the Radical Theologies book series (RADT)


The concept of boundaries brings a range of images to mind, depending upon our life experiences. One set of pictures that arises is that of backyard fences or the absence thereof. My parents evolved from a mere decorative fence that would keep no one and no critter out of their yard to one that utterly isolated the yard from the outside world but where my mother created a mini floral paradise with her deft gardening skills.
