PREACHING ACROSS THE DIVIDE
Wednesday, March 20th - Friday, March 22nd
All Saints' Beverly Hills, CA
This three-day intensive program for parish clergy in the Diocese of Los Angeles aims to elevate each participant’s preaching to a level where sermon preparation becomes a welcome task and Sunday can’t come soon enough.
With a time-tested tapestry of model sermons, sermon preparation workshops, and small preaching groups, the conference guides each participant to locate and share the authentic power of witness that resides in every committed minister.
This conference addresses the challenges facing most preachers today: a congregation divided in beliefs and alleiances, exacerbated by today’s fractured political and social enviorment.
