Today is the birthday of theologian Stanley Hauerwas!
Although I don’t always agree with him, Stanley Hauerwas’s work (and that of his many students, e.g., Phil Kenneson and others associated with The Ekklesia Project) has been absolutely vital to the Slow Church book that John Pattison and I co-wrote.
In honor of his birthday, I pick out 10 brief video clips of Hauerwas talking about key virtues and practices related to Slow Church.
Several of these clips were made by Travis Reed of The Work of the People. Be sure to visit his website, check out other extraordinary videos he has created and contribute generously to his work!
