This is a response to Gemma Tulud Cruz' article 'Migration as Locus Theologicus. I offer my appreciation for her border-crossing reflection by musing around the significance of seeing migration (which involves shifting) as a site (which presumes located-ness) for theological reflection and theological construction. My drifting island mind expects theologies conceived on the waves of migration and shouldered by migrants to uproot and be transitory, to float across borders and frontiers, and to be strange, and so i welcome the moves that Cruz makes; except, i confess, for the linking of migration with salvation. What difference does migration-defined salvation make for the First People of the land? What does salvation defined on the wakes of migration and settlement mean for Earth?
