Two lectures were delivered by Stanley Hauerwas. The first is entitled Learning the Languages of Peace, in which Hauerwas offers an alternative to other suggestions about what it means to live in a global society as Christians. Notably, he will challenge some of the universalistic presumptions that make commitment to the Lordship of Christ problematic. The second lecture is entitled A Worldly Church: Politics, Theology and the Common Good in which Hauerwas shows how an understanding of practical reason reveals a politics of locality and how that politics is also a form of ecclesiology.

Please note, due to technical difficulties, some portions of the first lecture might be a bit hard to listen. We apologize for the inconvenience.
