Willie Jennings – Slow Church Conference – Lecture #1

Here is the first of the audio recordings from the Slow Church Conference that we hosted last week here at Englewood Christian Church.

Our aim for the conference was to foster conversation around the work of several key theologians whose work inspired the Slow Church book that John Pattison and I wrote.
