I’m slowly making my way through James K. A. Smith’s Awaiting the King, hoping to have it read through once before Thanksgiving. It’s a good read that brings a lot of threads together (along with some nice nods to pop culture, which is always appreciated). One thing that Smith does early on is address the question of the “social imaginary” of politics. Social imaginaries were a big part of the first Cultural Liturgies book, so I’m glad to see that thread brought back here. In this video, Smith talks about “space” and the liturgical reality of our political and public lives.
