This Sunday DECOLONISING SUNDAY SCHOOL is back!
Directions for sign up and book access below, with details and a bit about the importance of our economic practices and times.
This is an opportunity to:
- Deepen a decolonising journey of discipleship that shares in the transformative faithfulness of Jesus the Messiah.
- Deepen in a communal listening spirituality where those who find themselves first learn to make space by going last while those who find themselves last operate in their dignity as children of God and go first.
- Put economic justice into practice! Everyone who participates in the InVerse Collective is experimenting with Jesus’ kin[g]dom/Reign of God/Jubilee economics. For InVerse, capitalism does not drive who gets access to all we do, Jesus does. Those from richer nations and/or stations in life through InVerse redistribute the costs so that those in poorer nations can share in every aspect of our community. Unlike other Patreon setups if you give $300 a month your reward is not “more access” like buying your way into a virtual greenroom. We cannot pray for God reign to come while operating like we are building another empire. Our Lord’s half brother doesn’t mix words about favourable treatment of the rich “this kind of thinking is sinful”. (James 2:4) God has chosen those who are poor in the eyes of the system to be rich in faith, and so will InVerse. Your reward is sharing in the joy of this work being more accessible to all. For all who share our vision and do just this monthly, we thank God for you. Our process has meant we’ve been able to purchase for people internet access, books, shipping and all other expenses. By signing up you will be remunerating a First Nations theologian for their work, pay a translator a fair wage, contribute to spaces that honour and celebrate Elders and emerging Indigenous leaders, and contribute to the ongoing sustainability of the InVerse Collective and Misingi Trust.

Details of where the book money is going:
For the first time ever Msingi Trust and InVerse Collective have been able to be involved with the translation of a First Nations theologian into English. With the blessing of the author own Daniel Fuller has translated Sámi Theologian Rev. Tore Johnsen’s work, “Children of the Earth, Children of the Sun, Children of the Wind: Christian Faith in a Sámi Landscape” into English for the first time.
Daniel in consultation with Rev Tore Johnsen has come to a share agreement on a just remuneration for their work. While others might think this is just details we are deeply moved that we could be a part making this happen. A special thanks to both Rev Tore and Daniel we are so excited our money is not going to Amazon but to your hard work.
