St. Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church, Studio City, Calif.
A one-day event for preachers in the Los Angeles area
Spend a day with members of the Sermon Brainwave podcast team and your local colleagues in ministry thinking about how and why you preach. Consider how sermons that are attentive to biblical passages and their nuances can lead congregations into rich reflections on God, the gospel, and the contexts in which we live. A combination of plenary sessions, workshops, and discussions will provide opportunities to ponder your approach to preaching in general and some of the specific biblical texts coming during the Lenten and Easter seasons. Conclude the day refreshed and equipped with new insights to fuel your preaching.
This event is open to all preachers, whether lay or ordained.
