Parks and Rec and Seeking the Peace of the City

I have a new post up at Her.meneutics on the TV show Parks and Recreation: The Prophetic Voice of Leslie Knope.  It was really fun to write this piece because I'm a fan of the show (and I will miss it). And it's kind of Leslie Knope meets Wendell Berry meets Jesus. I got to think about Catholic social thought and Li'l Sebastian in the same piece. When does that happen?
My husband and I rarely have shows we enjoy together (I'm more into beautiful people talking and he's into zombies killing everyone), but we have loved watching this show together. And we have also loved bouncing ideas off of each other about concrete localism and human-scaled social action and Christian witness. So this is a bit of a post-valentine shout out to him.
Check it out and tell me what you think.
