"What should I read this summer?" That is such an important question and ostensibly, a simple one. But have you roamed the library or local bookstore lately? (I'm old school, but even trolling Amazon is overwhelming, am I right?) SO many genres, so many beautiful covers, so many ways to feel defeated before you even start!
I discovered this reference to THE WILD SPACE last month while reading a book about the Rwandan Genocide called ‘Mirror to the Church’ by Father Emmanuel Katongole. He credits theologian Sally McFague for the term, which she describes as a characteristic, trait, or set of circumstances that give you a different point of view than the dominant culture in which you reside. “…It is the space that will allow—and encourage—you to think differently, to imagine alternative ways of living. It will not only give you problems, but possibilities.”
