Class description

We welcome all clergy and lay leaders to this class focusing on preparing and delivering progressive sermons, spiritual messages, and homilies. We will discuss letting the text speak, posing questions in sermons, and the use of personal stories. As we explore the concept of prophetic witness, we will discuss the power of our modeling and the force of our words. We will share pitfalls, fears, success stories, and how to respond to critics.
