The Centre for Religion and Its Contexts at Emmanuel College and Shining Waters Regional Council (The United Church of Canada) are pleased to host the second “Rethinking Preaching’ Conference with this year’s theme, “Intercultural Preaching.” The challenge of intercultural preaching in the midst of social crises defined by racism, colonialism, and ecological crisis has gripped preachers in all parts of the world. What’s more, online worship and the use of technology are on the rise and have contributed to cultural shifts that challenge long-held assumptions about worship. All prompts us to rethink preaching.
The Centre and Shining Waters invite seasoned and new preachers, students of homiletics, and participants who seek to “rethink preaching” to join our conference in 2022.
Our keynote speakers, Prof. Jerusha Neal (Duke Divinity School) and the Rev. Michael Blair (General Secretary of the United Church of Canada) will be joining us. These special guests along with two responders, four workshop leaders, and racialized preachers who engage in intercultural preaching research will help us rethink and explore intercultural preaching for today.
