The church of the global south, where the vast majority of Christians are, is usually not the first place we Western Christians consult about our theological questions. We necessarily employ a variety of sources, pre-understandings, and experiences for theological reflection, but rarely among them is what our sisters and brothers in Africa, or Latin American, or Asia think.
There is an historical reason for this: colonialism, the premise that it is our job to tell them what to believe and practice about God, not the other way around.
