June 3 - 7, 2013: The Preacher's Self: The Role of the Preacher in the Sermon
Is preaching just one more item on your to-do list, or is it part of your identity, part of your self? We'll be looking at this topic and others, including the preacher alone and in community, the place of the preacher in the sermon, and the preacher as sermon. Join us for this practical and philosophical look at the role of the preacher in today's church.
Faculty: The Rev. Micah Jackson, Bishop John Hines Associate Professor of Preaching
