“The Story We Carry in Our Bones”

One of my “best moments” in 2018 was the opportunity I had in the summer to “hang out” with James K. A. Smith for a while.  Not long, mind you, as there were a few dozen other people at Laity Lodge that long weekend.  Nevertheless, it was nice to have a quick conversation laced with gratitude while looking over the Frio River.

A few months ago, Smith spoke at Southeastern Seminary about “the good life.”  The talk, shared below, is a nice recapitulation of Smith’s thinking about cultural liturgies, particularly as it clarifies and maybe even “re-converts” the idea of the good life and the Christian faith.  It’s a great way to start the new year, I think, a talk that I hope to revisit often.
