9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Preaching in the West Coast Environs—Possibilities and Pitfalls: A Workshop for Preachers with The Rev. Dr. Ray Pickett

June 13 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

John Steinbeck once said “If the story is not about the hearer, he will not listen” (East of Eden).
Preaching text and context at the same time is difficult. Yet that is our charge as we invite others into purposeful dialogue between scripture and culture. The Rev. Dr. Ray Pickett will address the contextual reality of preaching in our secularized region, drawing on his work as a New Testament theologian and his work in community organizing around matters of racial justice and social equity, grounded in principles of community formation found in scripture. This is a timely conversation for all preachers.
