What if much of our action is driven less by what we think and more by what we love? What if our cultural labor is less a matter of what we believe and more a matter of what we imagine? And what if our imaginations can be recruited by visions of the good life without us realizing it? In other words, what if Christian faith is not just a set of a beliefs but a social imaginary? This talk will explore the significance of a Christian imagination for shaping action and innovation. We'll be especially attuned to how our imagination are formed by the practices of Christian worship—and can be deformed by secular liturgies.
