Abstract

This article aims to reconsider the concept of 'context' as it is used in intercultural theologies. Issuing from a case in which migration, gender, and religious tradition collided during fieldwork in the Celestial Church of Christ Covenant Parish in Amsterdam—a congregation of primarily Nigerian first generation migrants— this contribution will explore how migration questions approaches to context linked to geographical location. The article proposes to rethink the meaning of context in situations of migration through the combined concepts of transnationalism and agency. As both transnationalism and agency are embedded in a particular 'place,' the intersections of power structures that have impact on agents create ever-changing 'context-in-relations.' Tracing the context-in-relations can then become a starting point for doing theology.
