April 2011

Since February we were able to put most of the books written over the years on this web/blog under the heading ” Writings”, with also the much debated work ‘Mary and Human Liberation’ and the most elaborated theological book ‘Right Relationships’. We are happy to make available these books and most of the thinking from over half a century. When we started with “Planetary Theology” in the beginning of the eighties, we could hardly imagine that nowadays, the content of the book and also the concept “Planetary Theology” would be in the heart of a lot of contemporary theology and discussions. Several books – in Latin America- and elsewhere, of companions of Eatwot are working on the same issues and with this same concept, like also was shown in the last coming together of the WFLT (World Forum of Liberation Theology)  in  Dakar, Senegal in February 2011, where “Planetary Theology” was commonly used.

We have to rethink over and over again our theologies and speak in a relevant way on the issues today at stake on the way for a global different world of justice and good life for all on this earth.

We are also happy that following the launch of the book “Bernadeen Silva on  Feminism” on 11th April, we could add the book. Ms Bernadeen Silva was for decades the assistant director of CSR (Center for Society and Religion). She was a true and faithful companion in the work for ethnic cooperation, just relations between women and men, rich and poor, with no compromises, but living fairly and challenging. Her writings on social feminism were since decades ago on the forefront in Sri Lanka.

This year in august 2011 we will also celebrate the work of 40 years of the “Center for  Society and Religion”, a celebration the present staff and director are preparing, we will also on this page give more details on it, in the coming months.
