On 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.

From ERB Editor Christopher Smith
"This book will inspire, motivate and challenge anyone who cares a whit about the written word, the world of ideas, the shape of our communities and the life of the church."
