Product Description

In the beginning, the church ate together, traveled together and shared in all facets of life. Centered as they were on Jesus, these seemingly mundane activities took on their own significance in the mission of God. In Slow Church, Chris Smith and John Pattison invite us to leave franchise faith behind and enter into the ecology, economy and ethics of the kingdom of God, where people know each other well and love one another as Christ loved the church.

This eleven-session study guide provides an opportunity to reflect on the message of the book both individually and in community. Each session features lectio divina, conversation starters, and a closing thought.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Slow Church: " Slow Church is a manifesto and handbook rolled into one. . . . It reads like what it is: the long, patient fruit of two men deeply rooted in a particular place, among neighbors they know, love, and serve. . . . Make haste, then. Run, do not walk, to your favorite bookstore, buy a copy, and set your church table for a feast."
Praise for Slow Church: "Inspired by the 'slow food' movement and disheartened by the 'fast' church trends, Smith and Pattison are advocating for 'reimagining what it means to be communities of believers gathered and rooted in particular places at a particular time.' Slow Church promises something richer and more substantive than quick fixes."
Praise for Slow Church: "The authors write clearly and persuasively; each section of the book offers a theoretical and scriptural basis . . . and practical suggestions for their implementation."
