Rock! Paper! Scissors! Issue #3: Truth, Trust, and Power
What are the possibilities for building trust when the pain and oppression of marginalized people continues to be discredited and dismissed? When is truth-telling imperative, whether or not the offending person or group has committed themselves to trust-building? How do we take into account the power imbalances that exist even between groups that are committed to a restorative process? What kind of spiritual practices are needed to engage in the transformative work of trust-building and truth-telling?
Jesus Radicals wants to share your stories of resistance, love, and transformation. Between now and January 4, 2019, we are seeking pitches for articles, poems, photography, prose, and other media on this theme of Truth, Trust, and Power as it specifically relates to the kinds of robust relationship-building practices we need in polarized times.

Issue #4: TBA
Rock! Paper! Scissors! is a tri-annual, topic-focused, web-publication exploring the intersections of anarchist politics and Christian faith. Through following the way of Jesus in the shadow of empire, we seek to undermine systems of oppression and creatively explore possibilities for liberation from an anarchist or radical christian perspective.
