“Christian preaching is that joyful vocation whereby we are called to talk about Jesus Christ rather than ourselves, our assumed needs, or even our congregations.” (from Will Willimon’s new book ‘How Odd of God: Called to the Vocation of Preaching’, Westminster / John Knox, Fall, 2015) This workshop will focus upon sustaining the peculiar qualities required for Christian preaching as a theological task.
This event will be held at Christ Church Cathedral, 690 Burrard Street, Vancouver, BC, V6C 2L1.
