Cavanaugh on Creation and Economy
I never wrote up any thoughts after the Ekklesia Project gathering in Chicago last week, but for starters, the folks at Englewood Review of Books have posted audio of Bill Cavanaugh's plenary lecture here. His work has been important to me since some friends first gave me Torture and Eucharist in 2004, and his presence was really the main reason that I was so interested in attending the conference. I don't think EP made 'official' recordings of the conference, so I was happy to come across these files. He spends the first fifteen minutes narrating the collapse of the derivative-based economy, so if that is still confusing to you, maybe his retelling will help.
