Why are we committed to transformation?
H. Richard Niebuhr: The Responsible self, helps us to investigate, to unpack our motives
Three metaphors for self-understanding
Rejects material which does not fit his/her purpose
We are all our working on selves- our own selves or our companions- technicians, artisans, craftsmen, artists.
Living under laws
Politics as the art of what is possible
Obedience as the highest form of live
Key question: what is fitting, what is a fitting response?
To interpret to understand what is going on
Accountability, to stay with your actions
Responsibility affirms- God is acting in all actions upon you. So respond to all actions upon you as to respond to his actions
