WILLIAMS, D.T.. A kenotic response to secularity. Koers (Online) [online]. 2008, vol.73, n.1, pp. 101-119. ISSN 0023-270X.

The church must be concerned to make the correct response to its increasing impotence and marginalisation in Western society due to secularisation. Past reaction has been to accommodate to the changed worldview, even to identify with it. A more appropriate response is to be Christocentric, so as to reflect the action of God himself in the sending of Christ for salvation. This involved his kenosis . In this case the response of the church is its own kenosis. This is also appropriate as secularisation was possible through the kenosis of God. The kenosis of the church is not an acceptance of defeat, but on the contrary, just as the kenosis of Christ, it aims at a positive result, the transformation of society.

Palabras clave : Christocentric; culture; kenosis; self-limiting; secularisation.
