2010 - James K. Smith - Desiring the Kingdom: Worship, Worldview, and Cultural Formation Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Adjunct Professor in the Department of Congregational and Ministry Studies at Calvin College. He describes his work as “undertaken in the borderlands between philosophy, theology, ethics, aesthetics, science, and politics.” He is most interested in bringing critical thought to bear on the practices of the church and the church's witness to culture. Smith has written many books, and his presentation will be based on his most recent which was released in September 2009.
#45— How (Not) to Be Secular, with James K. A. Smith [MIPodcast] Why was it virtually impossible not to believe in God in, say, 1500 in our Western society, while in 2016 many people find it more difficult to believe than not? This is the question that Charles Taylor tackles in his massive book A Secular Age.
In this episode, James K. A. Smith joins us to talk about Taylor’s work. What was it like to believe in God in the past and what is it like for many believers today—and how did we get from there to here? Whether you find it easy or difficult to believe in God today, you&#8217;ll find much food for thought in Smith&#8217;s book How (Not) to be Secular: Reading Charles Taylor.

Why Do We Need the Arts? A Conversation with James K. A. Smith &nbsp;






&nbsp;



We are best catechized by our senses. We learn from parables and fairy tales, stories&nbsp;with the same homespun elements in infinite arrangements that we come to know by heart.



It’s why I so often say that it is art and story that drew me back to the practice of faith, not theology.



“The Spirit is operative in spaces and places and institutions outside the church.”—James K.A. Smith



“Liturgies work affectively and aesthetically,” writes Image’s new editor in chief,&nbsp;James K. A. Smith in his book,&nbsp;You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit.&nbsp; “They grab hold of our guts through the power of image, story, and metaphor. That’s why the most powerful liturgies are attuned to our embodiment; they speak to our senses; they get under our skin.”







Smith, who is also a philosophy professor at Calvin College, argues that&nbsp;traditional Christian worship re-orients our hearts toward eternity, while so much contemporary worship only apes&nbsp;popular culture, with churches designed to feel like secular spaces, arenas, malls and coffee shops.



Smith’s work has always moved me, not just as a person of faith but as a writer and artist, making me more aware of how art bends my internal compass, one way or another.



Now that Smith is editor in chief of Image, we’re working together to draw attention to the intersection of faith and the arts.



“If the believer is haunted by an echoing emptiness, the unbeliever can be equally haunted by a hounding transcendence.”—James K.A. Smith&nbsp;
