This article is an attempt to outline the conceptual resources of “doing theology at the rough grounds” in seven keywords – location, praxis, dialogue partners, methods, see-judge-act, rough grounds and questions. Acknowledging that all theologies are contextual, it begins by accounting the author’s social location and his search for theoretical resources that resonated with his concerns, specifically his passion for the people whom he holds dear. This search has brought him to dialogue-partners and allies mostly outside of the theological world. Their insights have influenced his search for a theological method and his faltering efforts to make theology liberative and meaningful in our times. He ends his article with attempts at answering some questions which were asked of him, and the challenge toward a reflexive silence in the rough grounds.
