Wendell Berry

I stumbled this morning on this fascinating 1978 lecture by Wendell Berry, which as best I can tell has never been published in one of Berry’s books.

Description:In a discussion about language and culture, the author of The Unsettling of America: Culture & Agriculture argues that the deterioration of language into vague technocratic abstractions is directly responsible for our present moral, ecological and political ills.

If this lecture was timely in 1978, it is even more so today, 35 years later!!!

There are a few rough spots is this recording (presumably due to the transfer from tape to digital), but stick with it as this lecture is well worth the time!

Paul Sparks, Chris SmithOn Tuesday night September 18, we here at Englewood Christian Church on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis were pleased to host a conversation about churches and neighborhoods facilitated by ERB editor Chris Smith and Paul Sparks of the Parish Collective.

This “Reimagining the Parish” conversation drew a diverse crowd of participants from around central Indiana (A huge thanks to all who attended!)


An overview of the conversation:

1) Chris sketches the Slow Church vision and why Englewood is excited about the work of the Parish Collective

2) Paul overviews the work that he is involved in with the Parish Collective

3) A wide-ranging Q/A conversation on churches, neighborhoods and place.

Please download, listen and freely share this recording as you see fit.
The evening was also video recorded and clips from that video will be available in the near future.
