I had the opportunity to do a workshop on Slow Church and Comprehensive Community Development at the Christian Community Development Association (CCDA) conference in New Orleans last Friday. We had a standing-room only crowd (albeit in a small room), but a very engaged audience with a good questions. Thanks to all who came out to the workshop!
If you weren’t able to be there, a condensed version of the talk appears as an essay in the current print issue of The Englewood Review of Books (Subscribers, your issues will be arriving soon. If you are not a subscriber more info is available here….)
Below are the slides from the talk. As you will see, due to the impeccable timing of the folks at our publisher (Intervarsity Press), we finalized the book’s cover mere hours before this talk, so was able to drop it into the slides…
Books mentioned in this workshop:
– The Virtue of Dialogue by C. Christopher Smith
– The Power of Asset Mapping: How Your Congregation Can Act on Its Gifts by Luther K. Snow
– Kingdom Calling: Vocational Stewardship for the Common Good by Amy Sherman
