And again, another link to an earlier post highlighting the recent lecture series delivered at St. Martins-in-the-Field, London (Sept-Nov. 2016). Specifically, I want to highlight the lecture delivered by US Theologian Stanley Hauerwas. It was delivered ahead of the 2016 Presidential Elections, and as a “yellow dog democrat” his early vote had been for Hillary Clinton. His hope, along with many many other people in America and all around the world, was that she would convincingly beat Donald Trump.
But as we all know, that wasn’t to be the case and the US (and the wider world) has to contend with President-Elect, and soon to be 45th President of the United States of America Donald J. Trump.
Hauerwas is well worth listening too and he offers some useful theological / Christian insights into Trump and the state of the US, John Milbank and a range of other subjects. So, I particularly want to single that talk out from the other fine lectures delivered by equally fine thinkers.
