HOLY HERETIC DEVOTIONAL – Feb. 6, 2017 – SHEROES & HEROES: ACTIVISTS

Compiled by Mercy Junction Justice and Peace Center Pastor Brian Merritt

Where there is power, there is resistance. Michel Foucault

Michel Foucault was a French philosopher, historian of ideas, social theorist, philologist and literary critic. His theories explore the relationship between power and knowledge, and how they are used as a form of social control through our societal institutions. Even though he is often associated with the post-modernist and post-structuralism movements he rejected those categorizations.

Foucault was active in a number of anti-racist, anti-human rights abuses campaigns and the struggle for penal reform.

Today’s Action: Think about something that you are ashamed of. Say, “I forgive myself.”

Sharing: We would love to hear on our Holy Heretic Facebook page, facebook.com/holyhereticzine.
