Why is it important?

Public theology give's ministers, theologian's, theological graduates and church people a voice in the public sphere of Samoa. Public theology allows the voiceless to voice their views on public matters. While Mercy Ah Siu-Maliko used Samoan core values to address her public issue of domestic violence, i turn to foundations and structures to address the issue of taking the church (CCCS) to court.


I hope the article will give people the confidence to voice their opinion on public matters without the fear of banishment.
