A Conversation with James K. A. Smith

On Thursday, November 3, the Inn had the privilege of hosting writer and theologian Dr. James K. A. Smith for an intimate conversation about the spiritual power of habit and "domestic liturgies." Residents of the Inn read and discussed Smith's "You Are What You Love" during the summer for a weekly book group, and much of the rhetoric and practice of the Hillside Inn has been influenced by Dr. Smith. It was an honor to spend a few hours in conversation with him before he departed for a speaking engagement at George Fox University's William Penn lecture series. We hope to host many more conversations like this in the future!
