FINAL REVIEW
Week 6: “Neighbor” By Ben Daniel
Offsite: Pastor Traback at the River Community Garden
Offsite #2: Almaz at Step Up Silicon Valley * Is Rawls veil of ignorance the equivalent of Ellacuria’s preferential option for the poor? * Recford and Daniel: * Both Protestant ministers (biblical texts as source or vehicle for framing and thinking through issues) * Both deliberate and conscious of challenges of relating Biblical faith to Social issues * Housing and immigration are public policy issues * Daniel devotes a chapter to this question, using “Caesar vs. God” image from New Testament * Micah Shows up in both books (see below) * Differences? * Is immigration more of a “hot button” issue than housing? * If so, do we find different kinds of rhetoric? * Phil comment in class: Does Reckford focus more on system or structures or root causes (next slide) and Daniel more on individuals? * If so, do we have different kinds of solidarity in these two approaches? * Root Causes (“cycle”) of Poverty (structural analysis) (52-53) * Rhetorical device? * Cites 5 of them * “social capital” (56-58) is a rich illustration * Solidarity involves “learning” and “sensitivity” and “collaboration” (60) * Corresponding interventions/Solutions * E.g. “not charity but capital” (Clarence Jordan, cited 54) * 62-63: justice = level playing field (Sen. M. Fenwick, grandmother) * Housing is one of several interventions, but foundational (59) * Note structural components (infrastructure) of this intervention * E.g. ONE Campaign (http://www.one.org/us/) : 1% of US budget against extreme poverty * Immigration as “spiritual pilgrimage” * Religion/Public Square (ch.4) * “Do I believe in the moral teaching of my faith more than I believe in the constructs of humankind, nationalism, and borders?” (xi) * Theme throughout * E.g. p. 11 * Chapter 1: FR. Toribio’s Ghost * Xviii Title from Gospel: Luke 10: Good Samaritan: Who is my neighbor? * Compare MLK and Road to Jericho * Daniel spin * Not charity * Not public policy/political activism * Friendship: the person from outside who saves and blesses us …(xix). Personal relationship…but note also suggestion that stranger does something for us (despite ourselves?), not just vice versa. * Do you agree that this biblical story applies to Immigration? * Policy Question: 5 changes reflect his “progressive” stance xix * Major claim Daniel makes: Immigration may be about economics and politics…but it “is also a religious phenomenon” What does that mean? Do you agree? * Faith-based language for journey: Immigrants = spiritual travelers, pilgrims * Popular piety: Fr. Toribio, a RC saint (preferential option for the poor? ) “Might God look with favor upon the prayers of those who seek to enter the United States without permission?” (9) * Los Originales de San Juan (Fresno) song about F. Toribio * Chapter 2: Immigration as Biblical Journey * Daniel: a life “walking alongside immigrants” * E.g. May 2006 Rally in San Jose * Biblical angles: Old Testament/Hebrew Bible * Nb Bible itself is written and edited by immigrants, and is about exile, refugees, strangers in a strange land (16) * Genesis: series of immigration stories * Cain (land) vs. Abel (nomad) Cain’s curse= redemption: to be a wanderer… * Noah Babel: cultural diversity, restorative migration * Abraham in Canaan * Joseph and human trafficking! * Moses and Exodus * Israel: Settlement – Migration dynamic * Israel is called to remember this heritage and treat the “alien” as a “citizen” (20) * Biblical Angles: New Testament * Birth narratives (Christmas story): introduce Jesus through the lens of migration, displacement, refugees (20) * Paul as immigrant Christians called to an immigrant spiritual life. * Revelations: “open border policy” * Chapter 3: Immigration in Church History * Chapter 4: Rendering to Caesar and God * Chapter 5: Politics, Zoe Lofgren * Chapter 6: Politics, Judge Brack * Micah In Hebrew Bible (Xn Old Testament) * Chapter 7: Frontera de Cristo * Chapter 8: Water in the Desert * Chapter 9: Lilinana and the New Sanctuary Movement * Chapter 10: Good Escuelas…places of/for Solidarity? * Conclusion: Silicon Valley and Globalization angle? * Daniel’s Neighborhood in East San Jose = future of America, microcosm of future demographic (148) * It is changing: SJ Valley: hispanic/latino and Asian * Cain/Abel: settled, sedentary are disposed to fear the migrant, demonize the other * His vision: neighborhood that is a sanctuary for those threatened by USA immigration policy * Note, his next book was about Islam in America (2013) *
Week 7: Creating a Habitat for Humanity
Offsite: None * Our interests * Not exclusively Reckford as an architect; more H4H as an Organization. * A lever to trigger change in individual volunteers AND in low income communities * Religious Grounding: similar to Boyle’s Homeboy Industry? Or more “religion” language * P. 10, “holy ground….God’s unconditional love for us” * H4H is grounded in Evangelical Christianity. See “Mission” on website which is more or less repeated in closing pp. 105-107. * But also uses non-religious language—e.g. in discussion of Rawl’s theory of justice (66-67) * Reckford’s interests * “My goal is to ignite in people a greater sense of purpose—to help people personally experience how others live—to see the face of extreme poverty.” (32) * Introduction: * Book is answer to, Why are you here? (1, 6) * Structure of Book * Micah 6: 6-8 * Mercy/Compassion * Justice * Humility * Six Core principles (web vision, more or less) * Part One: Mercy * Mercy: * Result of personal involvement (13) * Local, particular, not universal, abstract * Relationships (Stories [narratives]) (15) * Kolvenbach on contact? * feeling and action (11) * Discontent “holy discontent” (15-16, 18) * Includes compulsion to act (“For the Christian….[h]ow we respond—what we choose to do—is optional, but the call to conscience and obedience [context, scripture] is not an option.” [19]) * Kolvenbach on service of faith AND promotion of justice. * Biblical warrants for action (tapestry of passages) * P. 18-19 on care for the poor * P. 12 on Good Samaritan * Compare MLK’s take on this scriptural image below * MERCY (Global) * Partnerships include USA/local Habitat, homeowner, and local community organizations on the ground * CEOSS (22; 34-35) * 24-26 Change * Structural question: House for (Aid to) individual community, social cohesion, civic capacity or infrastructure. “The building of communities is the essence of what we do at Habitat for Humanity.” (28) * Examples: stories of * Christian-Muslim cooperation, * transformation of shotgun shacks in Jackson, MI * Reconciliation: India/Pakistan, Northern Ireland (31-32) * Is the focus on community a way to get at the structural dimensions of poverty? * extend individual “outrageous generosity” regional, global, universal * 26: speculation: would such a shift to universal application requires transcendent lever (religious underpinning, as in Koinonia Farm [31])? * MERCY (Sustainable) * H/H is 4 decades old. How? Why does it work? * Core principles * And * Innovation, adaptability * E.g. micro-financing * Building in Stages * Save and Build * Back to big picture: * Book’s goal is to, “ignite in people a greater sense of purpose—to help people personally experience how others live—to see the face of extreme poverty.” (32) * Is his rhetorical strategy succeeding? * JUSTICE * P. 37 quote, MLK, “network of mutuality” * TNH quoted this too! * Letter from a Birmingham Jail opening page. * Pay attention to Reckford’s “rhetorical devices”: who he cites to illustrate or support his points. Like MLK, a variety of “authorities.” * Hope is part of justice? * “H4H is about building hope.” (41) * Job reference (good text for Katrina?) p. 41 * Hope is triggered by “acts of compassion” (43) * BUT… “partnership” is crucial (here, vs. “playing god”)_ * Dignity, lasting independence * MLK makes similar point in World House Essay * Seems close to Boyle, no? * Poverty and Housing * Analysis (cf. Brackley on “real”) * “affordability index” * “broken social contract” * Role of housing in human dignity (Malawi example [46]—sidebar: Ed Schaeffer, SCU’s Math Dept, http://math.scu.edu/~eschaefe/malawi.html * 2004-05 disasters brought this dimension to the forefront * “advocacy and catalysts with other partners”(48) * Is this analysis an example of the structural analysis of the “Road to Jericho” MLK suggested we should add to the usual way of reading the Good Samaritan story? * JUSTICE AND ANALYSIS UNDERSTOOD * Root Causes (“cycle”) of Poverty (structural analysis) (52-53) * Rhetorical device? * Cites 5 of them * “social capital” (56-58) is a rich illustration * Solidarity involves “learning” and “sensitivity” and “collaboration” (60) * Corresponding interventions/Solutions * E.g. “not charity but capital” (Clarence Jordan, cited 54) * 62-63: justice = level playing field (Sen. M. Fenwick, grandmother) * Housing is one of several interventions, but foundational (59) * Note structural components (infrastructure) of this intervention * E.g. ONE Campaign (http://www.one.org/us/) : 1% of US budget against extreme poverty * Biblical Model of Justice: Matt 25 (62,69) (H4H connect to faith community) or Micah (69) seems to correlate with Philosophic Model of Justice: Rawls (66-67) * So “Higher Standard” (63) w/ Bono commenting on Africa--“makes a fool of our idea of justice.” (64)— and invoking Abrahamic Religion Scriptures: “God…is with the poor.” * Cf Brackley, et al on Preferential Option for the Poor * leads into… CORRELATES W/ Rawl’s “veil of ignorance” theory of justice (66-67) * Religion source or Rhetoric? * the attributes of MLK’s “beloved community” [67])= Solidarity? E.g. heart, spirit, hope, goodwill, transcend boundaries… * Rawls: variation on Ellacuria’s preferential option for the poor? * Close: return to analysis: combating poverty requires more than philosophy and vision Harvard Center for Housing Studies * but even their report sounds like Bono rhetoric ( 68) * Directs us to ch. 6 (161) * Decides to close with Povertyusa.org statistics. Why? * Koinona Farms: Intl communities of kinship? Resistance? * Part 3: Humility * Attitude towards Partners: Micah 6:6-8 (76, 2) * Witness vs. convert…but * 7-77 story of Siberian woman: evangelization * 80 Micah “lawsuit”: worship is key to relationship w/ God and w/ one another; inner disposition of humility needs outward expression * Humility (empower not limit) relationship w/ partners who are “needy.” * “permeate throughout any faithful ministry” (83) * Clarence Jordan (Koinonia Farms) * 79: “eyes with which to see the glory of god”: is solidarity a grace-filled disposition…we cultivate in a community? * 1st hand experiences break heart (85; cf Brackley on El Salvador) * “radical acts of mercy” (85) * Audacious goal, but humility about our ability to achieve it (85-86) * Orgs and Individuals that partner w/ H4H are transformed * 81-83 orgs: h4h is “vehicle” (87) for church to be involved with people outside their group. * 85-86: “transformational moments when we see glimpses of the life that God intends for us.” * 86: H4H “puts a crack in the wall that economic wealth and security builds.” * “theology of the hammer” (89) “more than houses” (90) * H4h biblical principles (e.g. tithing) * “transformational ministry” (89) * Interfaith cooperation: citizens of the world * 2005: international h4h re-cast self to be humbler: spoke vs. hub; more of a catalyst. * Ch. 6: your calling? * SCU Vocation language? * Koinona Farms suggests community is important part of discernment process. * Compare Boyle on Communities of Kinship (as resistance). * Implications for thinking about solidarity? * E.g. what institutions support community necessary to cultivate disposition toward solidarity? * CONCLUSION: p. 105: If Habitat is an example of solidarity, then does the meaning of Solidarity include something like “ministry”?

Week 8: Dorothy Day “Loaves and Fishes”
Offsite: Fumi and Catholic Worker House Casa de Clara * CH. 8: (Tyranny of) Success—Was Boyle accurate? * Use Boyle’s Stand with vs. Stand for idea (repeated here on 172) but introduced in ch. On Compassion, pp. 72, 75. * Apply/unpack with his debate or disagreement with Dorothy Day on p. 173 * Day: don’t minister to slaves; devise strategies to abolish slavery * Boyle: accompany, kinship— “solidarize” our way out of injustices or suffering like slavery. * 177 is an important part of the answer * Connect to Preferential Option for Poor: Solidarity or kinship w/ “outcast” puts me in touch with God (I suffer like God suffers) * “Communities of Résistance”: * Margins are erased by powers that be WHEN they are moved by example, when they see kinship, that the outcast is valued. * Jesus did this. * See MLK, “Loving Your Enemies”: this is only viable way to change the structures of society. * N.B. “slow work” (179; ch. 5) * Cole’s Intro and Day’s Preface * Jesus hung out on margins vs. center of power * Day and Maurin: “fools for Christ” * Catholic and Intellectual * Communitarian vs. Nationalism, etc. * Writing Style, vocation as writer * Analytical * Iconoclastic * Self-criticism * Religious (intimacy) Christian Pilgrim * What kind of “organization”?

...Overview of Paper Requirements Dr Gehling’s INFO2070 class The paper you turn in for this iNFO2070 class must be an original work, written by you. 1 The final paper you turn in to me should not have been submitted to another instructor (at AUM or any other school) for credit in another class for a past, the current, or a potential future term. If you are currently employed, your paper should not include any information that might be considered proprietary, confidential, or might jeopardize your job, your company's competitive advantage or our national security. If you paper describes a case study (i.e. how something is done), I prefer that you not mention the company or agency involved by name unless it directly relates to specific points reported in your paper. Instead I encourage you to try to use phrases such as "a southeastern law firm (or whatever type of business)" or "a software developer located in the Southeastern United States". You should indicate industry or type of business, but unless you receive written permission, you should not name the organization/business. Contact me if you have questions.

That expertise ranges from backgrounds in the non-profit sector to occupational therapy, financial analysis, logistics, international consultancy, and corporate management. The specific work expertise related to marketing that is relevant to this class is also varied with some members having strong expertise in marketing, sales and business and financial relations, while others have had no experience at all in marketing. This sets up the members for an interesting working relationship. All have had ample experience doing group work in past classes at Liberty University. The group is dynamic in nature. All in all, the individuals are go-getters who work well both as managers and as team members or followers.

Organizational Behaviour

...an assignment to submit a case study analysis helped bust several myths about teams and provided valuable lessons in working as groups. There was rich diversity in the team in terms of work experience; varied skill sets as well as varying exposure to theoretical and practical concepts of OB. The approach taken to achieve our goal was to divide and conquer. The entire analysis was broken into smaller sections that were split across the individuals who picked the topics based on their comfort levels. The more senior and experienced members offered to take up more complex sections that involved more analytical skills. I offered to take up the task of compilation of the sections into a single deliverable and perform the necessary editing and review to publish an output that was consistent. This was accepted without any conflict due to the team’s faith in my writing skills and producing case reports which was demonstrated through my grades from earlier courses. The tangible evidence of skill/expertise helped build trust in my abilities and reduced potential conflict around leadership. Stages of Team Building: It was an interesting experience to see the different stages of team building in action such as the forming of the team when individuals who haven’t worked together in the past came together to work towards a common goal.
