Moving theology

perspectives of practical theology as hermeneutics of lived religion in Brazil


This study reflects on the possibilities of thinking about practical theology—especially liturgy and homiletics—as a hermeneutics of lived religion on the basis of Brazilian pop culture and cinema as spaces where culture, body, politics and religion shape the paradigm of movement and the search for alternatives, opening up hermeneutical possibilities for practical theology to rethink a church and a society being perpetually reformed. These possibilities are reflected on by consider-ing the concrete case of the Evangelical Church of the Lutheran Confession in Brazil (IECLB) as a migrant and moving church and by looking at the hermeneutics of lived religion in cinema as a form of a continuing movement and a moving theology.
