Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to do a brief talk (between broadcast sessions) at The Justice Conference Indianapolis.
I gave a short description of Slow Church that focused on our call to embody justice, peace and love in our local congregations. I also read part of one of my favorite poems by Wendell Berry and highlighted four themes in it that are essential to Slow Church:
1) Stability / Rootedness
2) Listening to our neighbors and the land in our place
3) Imagining flourishing futures for church and neighborhood
4) Working with and for others, so that they can do these same things in their places.Take a look, and if you like it, share it with others!
Sorry, that the video isn’t the greatest, but at least the sound is good…
