Resumen

RESANE, K. Thomas. The mining-induced displacement and resettlement: The church as a leaven and ecclesiology in context's response. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.3, pp.01-08. ISSN 2072-8050.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V71I3.2967.

Natural resources, especially minerals from the earth, are to be protected by humanity. The church, which acts as leaven in the world is called to rise and address the unfriendly mining activities called mining-induced displacement and resettlement (MIDR). The general theory of interpretation of creation account calls for human stewardship in the world. Humans must view themselves as partners with God in preserving and sustaining the cosmos. The communities had suffered negative socio-economic imbalances. The ekklesia in this cosmic chaos is called upon to fulfil four major functions, namely identity, integration, policy, and management as a way of intervention in communities that are victims of these mining activities. This response, ecclesiology in context, is the combination of theological and social-scientific approaches to the development of practical models and strategies for the church's interaction with modern society and its challenges.
