Christine Pohl

Here is the third of the audio recordings from the Slow Church Conference that we hosted earlier this month here at Englewood Christian Church.

Previously posted talks from the Slow Church conference:

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.

Christine Pohl is Professor of Church and Society at Asbury Theological Seminary.

Christine Pohl has taught at Asbury Theological Seminary since 1989. She is the author of several books including Making Room: Recovering Hospitality as a Christian Tradition. Her latest book is Living into Community: Cultivating Practices That Sustain Us (Eerdmans), which was chosen as The Englewood Review of Books 2012 Book of the Year.

The title of her talk was “An Economy of Gratitude and Hospitality”
