Here is the second of the audio recordings from the Slow Church Conference that we hosted last week here at Englewood Christian Church.
*** CLICK HERE for the 1st talk that we posted, by Willie Jennings.

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.

David has written several books, including most recently Prodigal Christianity: 10 Signposts into the Missional Frontier (co-authored with Geoff Holsclaw).  He also blogs frequently at ReclaimingTheMission.com.

    It is just so encouraging to hear this! We are four years into our missionary work (“church plant”) in Niagara and are experiencing that need for “presence” you spoke of. It requires so much patience, time and flexibility and yet, a structure of practices that direct the heart of who we are as a body. I wish we could sit together and just talk!
