Way To Do It

I’m heartened to see the Ekklesia Project’s quick reaction to President Obama’s Nobel Prize acceptance speech. EP has put up a blog where its participant spokespeople can articulate their responses to the speech; Stanley Hauerwas offers his appreciation and dissatisfaction in the first of the columns; Tobias Winwright has prepared another response, and I anticipate further contributions to the discussion. Since the most prominent media tend to treat theological deliberation as irrelevant — instead favoring either extreme responses from animate caricatures or pre-spun sound bites from churches’ Upper Management — this rapid deployment of digital publication illustrates a best-practices use of online resources for making audible the voice of a non-mainstream constituency. Bravo EP, and Bravo Hauerwas!
