William

Guatemala City, Guatemala

William has an incarnational method – a way of doing that transforms. William is part of a citywide network in Guatemala City nurtured by the Center for Transforming Mission – a training hub with Street Psalms. For years, hundreds of grassroots leaders have been learning how to “do” theology from below.


From Below

For more than a year William led a Bible study in a Guatemalan gang prison by literally standing on top of the cage, speaking down to the inmates. Eventually he persuaded the prison authorities to let him get down into the cage.

The Incarnation transforms the method by which we serve. It calls us out of the disembodied realm of ideas and theory (from above) into a new kind of relational practice (from below) where we are transformed from the bottom up and the inside out.
