Two important developments this week:

1) The Slow Church conference is two weeks away!

We’re very excited about our line up of speakers including Willie Jennings, David Fitch, Christine Pohl and MORE, and also thrilled that many of our friends will be able to join us for this event!
We still have space left, so you if want to participate for the full conference or just one day of it, register now!!!
2) John and I woke up on Monday to the very pleasant surprised that BOOKS AND CULTURE did their weekly podcast about the book!!!

B&C Editor John Wilson, praised the book, urging churches to buy and discuss it and offered some gentle criticism as well.

Listen now!


Please help us spread the word about the Slow Church conversation!
