This is a lovely clip from The Work of the People of Ian Morgan Cron talking about the Slow work of God… (HT: Scott Emery)

YES. This is a beautiful clip. I love the idea of the slow work of God. My experience of God has been, almost without exception, a slow, subtle revelation; the sort of thing I could miss if I didn’t take care to listen. For a long time, I felt like my experience was somehow inferior to the religious highs and pivotal, life-changing moments of insight reported by others, but came to realize that there’s as much power and perhaps greater sustainability in a slow faith. Maybe that’s why I became an Episcopalian — so I could work at becoming the liturgy. Lex orandi, lex credendi, right? Off to explore more of these vids.
Glad you liked the video. As I said on Facebook, as soon as I watched it, I thought of you guys and your work. I especially liked this part that went something like, “I kept telling the story over and over again until I became the story.” Great stuff. Here is my blog address in addition to my FB page: http://scottemery.wordpress.com/ Glad to be of some help. Keep up all the good work on your end. Blessings.
Wow, thanks very much for hooking me up with the dozens of Ian Morgan Cron video clips available on YouTube! What rich, evocative language he uses-very helpful and very encouraging. Good find, Chris!
Susan, Although I have long been a fan of the wonderful videos produced by The Work of The People (Travis Reed), it was actually Scott Emery who turned me on to the Ian Cron videos…

In fact, I just pulled a fitting and lovely quote from Hauerwas for the Sunday night conversation book from this video: http://www.theworkofthepeople.com/index.php?ct=store.details&pid=V00888
There are a number of lovely clips with Jean Vanier, including this one: http://www.theworkofthepeople.com/index.php?ct=store.details&pid=V00980
