Abstract
Based on the contex of life, humans build their theology of God. If Christianity teacher humans to have a relationship with the land as humans come from the land, the Aru people are just the opposite. The sea context that surrounds and makes life possible for them creates a reflection thet humans are actually created from the sea. The reflection is relfected through the myth of Eno Karang: a myth that rells about the beginning of their existence; their ancestors were created form the sea; the sea is the source of life for them; the sea ties their relationship; and the sea becomes a divine means that destroys but saves them. the myth of eno karang from Aru people is a myth that shows kinship between human and the sea. Myth is indeed an untrue imaginary story, but myth is a story taht underlies and gives meaning to life. Myth is one of the special revelations in contextualizing theology. The reality of the various damage that occurred in Aru people having forgotten their cultural roots-their identity-their identity: marine relatives. Thourgh renewing kinship bonding, which is by realizing the aspect of living kinship with the sea and reconsidering various behaviors thet deviate form the relationship, Aru will be saved. The myth of Eno Karang invites all creation to live a harmonious and peaceful relationship.
