This week, Professor John Swinton speaks on why in a culture that prioritises speed, efficiency, and productivity, we should remember that love takes time.

Professor Swinton is a former nurse, a minister in the Church of Scotland, and Professor Practical Theology and Pastoral Care at the University of Aberdeen. His books include Dementia: Living in the memories of God, which won the 2016 Michael Ramsey Prize, and Becoming Friends of Time (SCM Press).

This talk was delivered at the Theology Slam competition last month, at which he was a judge. All the talks from the event can be viewed on our Facebook page and at churchtimes.co.uk/theology-slam.
