Preaching From the Heart

Code: HOM6/702

Dates: January 2, 2023 - January 13, 2023

Time: 9:00 am for 3 hours

Two things have been pivotal in my development as a preacher. Looking at the world through Indigenous eyes and embracing the role of story or narrative impacted me as a preacher. When I understood that I was joining the community in telling the gospel story, it was both terrifying and liberating. I want to help people understand the gospel story but their own story as well. Second, Leslie Newbigin wrote that it is essential we speak the gospel from the heart. When people hear the gospel in their heart language, they hear the call to transformation. I want to spend some time in this class looking at how we speak from the heart. Both flows out of what I have learned listening and ministering with Indigenous people in the middle of a messy world.
