My god is decolonial. My god stands with the oppressed and advocates for the downtrodden. My god sits with the impoverished. My god is a vast and glorious embodiment of love in its most radical forms- intimate with pain and antithetical to hatred.
As a black, Malawian woman who has been a foreigner in all the places I have lived in for the past 8 years, articulating who god is in response to my existence and the particularity of my identity has been necessary for my survival and that of my relationship with the divine.
