Building Healthy, Faithful, Sustainable Congregations with attention to excellence in preaching
Sponsored by the Diocese of Oregon and the Episcopal Preaching Foundation
Join us for this fall leadership event in which we will consider excellence in preaching in the Diocese of Oregon. Topics include the challenges of preaching Lectionary Year A and the Gospel of Matthew as well as investigating Multi-Generational preaching and the use of props for the most effective proclamation of God’s Word. Clergy are expected to attend and Lay Preachers are invited and welcome to attend. Our plenary speakers:
The Rev. Dr. Barbara R. Rossing, professor of New Testament at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, where she has taught since 1994. Rossing has lectured and preached widely, including synod assemblies and global mission events for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), as well as ecumenical theological conferences.
The Rev. Dr. Stephen Smith, Rector of St Patrick Episcopal Church in Dublin, Ohio. Stephen has been rector of St. Patrick’s since 2003 and specializes in preaching in a multi-generational context. He is the author of Saving Salvation: The Amazing Evolution of Grace (Morehouse: 2005).
