“We have been through it, preachers. We have adapted and pivoted and survived. We have proclaimed the Gospel faithfully and preached God’s hope passionately. But now is the time for some serious self-care. We have heard from you and from preachers around the world that what preachers need now is help in sustaining and nurturing the preaching life.
The 2024 Festival of Homiletics is an invitation to lean into a little self-love. Together, we will relearn ways to care for the craft of preaching and discover new habits to support the preaching life. We will listen to uplifting sermons and experience inspiring worship, but we will also have time for reflection and renewal and remembering – to recall once again the why for what we do.
The hope for this year’s Festival is that you take home practices that will support you in the days to come and that you leave nourished in your proclamation of the Gospel.
Come renew, refresh, and recharge your spirit!
