Abstract

One’s Identity is a vital component of a human life. Identity is important, es- pecially considering when oneself is sometimes subjected to the judgment of others. Emmanuel Levinas initiated the concept of the ‘Imago Dei’ to reduce negative judgment whilst simultaneously elevating individual uniqueness based upon our natures as im- ages of God. The idea of ‘imago Dei’ manifests in one’s face. Our visage then becomes a non-verbal media of communication akin to a conversation expressing one’s identity whereas a dialectical exchange would otherwise prove cumbersome. An understanding of the ‘imago Dei’ brings people towards the awareness of their statuses as God’s cre- ations, creations most associated with Him to the extent he deigned designated them His very images.

Abstract

Recent cases of discrimination and intolerance have threatened the unity of Indonesia. We may forget that the unity in diversity (Bhineka Tunggal Ika) is a ‘given’ thing for the inhabitants of Indonesia. This article is a descriptive-critical reflection to this given-unity-in-diversity in the light of Pancasila as the practical-philosophy of Indonesian people. In the face of Indonesian people’s ethnicity, race, and religion diversities, a unifying love is needed, which is none other than the Pancasila itself.

Abstract

Interpretation is the art of seeking meaning just as the author originally intend- ed. In the process, the author’s intent becomes the key of which among many towards an interpretation. Each interpretation requires the interpreter to enter the author’s mind and identify with the author, achieve total experience or repeat the global experience of the author and enter the realm of his emotions. Chairil Anwar’s ‘aku Berkaca’ is an interesting text offering a rich depth of meaning to be drawn from. There are at least three layers of meaning contained within the poem, namely the context layer, the sound layer, and the meaning layer. These three layers of meaning usher the reader towards the climax indeed the climax as the author intends is a message and meaning in of itself.

Abstract

Technology continues to develop over time, from the Stone Age to the present day. Humans originally were the subject of creators and users of technology now feel threatened because they have degenerated into simply objects to technology. In other words, human dignity itself is threatened. According to Jean-François Lyotard, it can even be said of humans that we too are some form of technology, technology consisting of intelligent organ systems which have certain functioning mechanisms and that which work together to form an individual. Humans can not claim to be the most dignified of all creatures; we are but technological beings, motes of a much grander technological universe. Everything that which humanity creates and strives for, such as that of tech- nology, comes into its existence solely not of our own merits of skill or dignity, but rather due to humanities role as participants of a moving universe.

Abstract

The sacrament is a sign of God’s presence in the world. Through the sacrament mankind finds salvation. Men received the sacraments with the help of priests. Therefore, there is a demand for holiness for the priests. The question is, if as a sacrament minister, a priest does not show holiness, can the sacrament still bring salvation? To answer this question, this paper uses the idea of Saint Augustine of Hippo. Saint Augustine insists that the sacrament can still save because Christ works in it. In addition, there is a de- mand for priests to always practice self-sanctification.

Abstract

Grasping an image of peace by way of pop songs is certainly a challenging alter- native for anyone. Nonetheless these unassuming lyrics contain both dreams and inspi- rations to strive better for a lasting peace to be realized. The image of peace is revealed metaphorically within the lyrics and rhythm of pop songs, ergo one must first require the ability to fully comprehend said metaphors. Such Images of peace provide powerful catalysts of inspiration for listeners, which they in turn are animated to create the same images of peace. Songwriters in this regard are no less heralds envisioning and of more import contributing to the cause through their chosen media of lyrical.

Abstract

The plague is not something strange in the story of human civilization. Neverthe- less, the plague has always succeeded in delivering dynamic of humanity to the frightening crisis. At least, in his comment about the pandemic Covid-19, Yuval Noah Harari said that pandemic Covid-19 which we are facing right now has dropped almost all sectors in the world to the most crisis moment in its own generation. It is really possible to say this con- dition is capable enough to make humanity in trouble. It wouldn’t be wrong if we say that “hei..we are in big trouble” or “this pandemic is so terrible” and any expression else, but it would be much more dangerous if we are not capable to realize that pandemic Covid-19 has offered the way and chance for us to create the better future in human civilization. This paper is intended to invite us to reflect this Pandemic Covid-19 from a little bit differ- ent worldview, more precisely we may interpret pandemic Covid-19 as a concrete or real methaphor which explain something unknowable by its own knowable way.

Abstract

Humanity is unable to achieve grasp over the world so filled with mysteries. As a result, his life becomes limited. Although Humanity continues to hope, his limitations however see to it that human hope can crumble at any given moment. Based on these facts, human life becomes an absurdity. The absurdity of life throws man into an existence of the incomprehensible mystery of life. Albert Camus offers a way of life (modus vivendi) for him to survive this absurdity. He offers the authenticity of human life. This authenticity enables us to live as homo vivens. Homo vivens refer to those who live according to their true vocation as creators and directors of their own lives.

The approach used in this research is a pastoral-cultur- al-symbolic study. This study finds that the terminology of the cultural symbol ‘Tungku Api’ can be used as a contextual and real means of preaching to answer contextual pas- toral issues in the Timika Diocese of Papua.
