The "Other"...Ubuntu discussed by Michael Battle


The Rev. Dr. Michael Battle discusses Ubuntu...


Here is a video clip of my thesis advisor and professor from seminary, the Rev. Dr. Michael Battle who gives a very short (1min 29seconds) description of the African theology of Ubuntu, the idea that "a person is a person through other persons." He's a wonderful person and I feel blessed to have had the chance to learn (a bit) of his wisdom over my years in seminary. He is now serving in the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles.

Check it out, it's pretty good...
