Many of you have probably heard of the slow food movment (against the fast food industry), and perhaps even a slow life city (heralding a slow pace, slow education, slow industry, and slow aging). But what about slow blogging, or slogging? (Slow + Blogging = Slogging)
If you are looking for the next microwaved ‘critical theory’ with a side of canned theology, sprinkled with cheesy pop cultural references, then maybe this won’t work out for you.
But if you like things to simmer and stew for a bit, if you like chopping up the salad (adding those sugared walnuts), and setting the table with a reasonable argument, then pull up a chair and let’s have a conversation.
churchandpomo aims to be, hopes to be, longs to be, a place where we can reason together (and maybe argue a bit, together). And to do that takes a little time. So that is why we hope to be a SLOG, a Slow Blog.
So expect some longer posts that will take a little longer to digest, and take the time to slow down, think, comments, argue, propose, and ponder what the Church might be in this postmodern culture.
And please, just like the churches we might attend, let’s make this a pot luck where everyone brings a plate to share, dining from several extravagant cuisines.
(And we’re throwing the doors wide open and having our first
meal on August 15th around James K.A. Smith's
Afraid of Postmodernism? Taking Derrida, Lyotard, and Foucault to Church.)
See you then.
