Where God Happens Book Discussion

At Redemption Church this Lent, we’ve been studying Where God Happens by Rowan Williams. It’s been a fruitful sort of online Lenten book club. Scott Savage and I have been midrashing this book together, hoping to assist people as they wrestle with the material. We’ve been recording the sessions and posting them here.

Williams is the Archbishop of Canterbury – the head of the Church of England – and he’s brilliant. This work is packed with great information, but it’s more than that. Willaims coveys a deep sense of the relationship between our private life with God and our common life in a way similar to Bonhoeffer’s Life Together. He’s pushing the boundaries of what it means to interact with one another. What exactly happens as Christians relate to one another in community and why? How does our private life/solitude/disciplines factor into that. It’s not a simple read, but it is well worth the effort to reach for the high branches. If you don’t want to mess with reading the book but want to get the gist – give the podcasts a listen.
