As mentioned in the last 2 posts, I am needing to come up with working names for the three different vantage points that I am exploring (see here for more info on these). In the current format I just simply call them “Vantage Point” 1, 2, 3 – but I have been told that can be confusing. So I am trying to come up with a name that I could use for each vantage point.
There have been great suggestions given for each of the two, and I am very grateful to all of you that have shared your ideas with me. Here is the last one!
Vantage point 3:
This person considers faith important, and considers that faith rooted in Christianity. The manifestation of their faith is primarily found in the realm of social justice. These are people who believe that a relationship with Jesus should translate primarily into compassion and justice on behalf of the poor.
For many of these people, the commitment plays itself out in volunteerism – serving meals at shelters, tutoring students, building houses with Habitat for Humanity, becoming a big brother or big sister with a mentoring program, etc. Sometimes their commitment actually reorients their career paths –inner city schoolteachers, social workers, Peace Corps, etc.
Suggestions so far:
- Social Justice Vantage Point
What are your ideas for possible names for this vantage point?
