October 5-7, 2015            Celebration of Biblical Preaching: The Courage to Preach


We all know that preaching is no easy task. It takes courage to step up to the pulpit week after week and say something that’s worth hearing, let alone something on behalf of the biblical text and on behalf of God. But what does it mean to have the courage to preach? Is it just bravery or a mustering up of sheer will? And why do we need it? Why is this question worth asking of our preaching? This year’s Celebration speakers will help us enter into the vulnerable space that is the place of courage for proclamation. We will be invited to imagine courage in different ways, not just for the sake of preaching itself, but for the sake of gaining a renewed sense of preaching from the heart.
