“RENEWING OUR PREACHING, RENEWING OURSELVES”
Most preachers would acknowledge that preaching is intended to renew the church. But a lot of them would add that while preaching renews the church, it often nearly kills the minister in the process. In this interactive workshop, we’ll consider how we go about the preparation of sermons with insights from some of the latest homiletical theory, but also how we go about life itself. Together, we’ll think about what it means to live the preaching life to its fullest.

“FINDING OUR PREACHING VOICE”
Over the last few years, it has become fashionable to speak of preachers finding their unique “preaching voice”. It’s a metaphor of course – a way of describing the many different ways clergy preach. In this interactive workshop, we’ll consider four stages of preaching (studying, stories, sequence, and delivery), focusing on what it means to find one’s own style in each area. Together, we’ll think about what it means to become an authentic person in the pulpit.
