Abstract

This article discusses various issues related to the effect of migration and being in Diaspora on theology, with specific reference to Christianity. For the past several years, the article author has been exploring the theme of "Following the Hyphenated Jesus-Christ." That rather intriguing title has to do with how the person and work of Christ is understood in a situation of migration and the construction of hybrid identities in a new land. It represents a departure away from the usual, often troublesome settlement issues of establishing congregations, recognizing ministers, sharing buildings, and negotiating the lines of relationship between sending and receiving denominations in different countries.
