This course is about how to rethink the basics of reflecting the Gospel into others’ lives. Students will gain practical skills – and a specific method – to build sermons that work from both the pulpit and the smartphone. They will also be led through the ways that Digital Ministry has impacted traditional liturgy, and how we respond homiletically to the changing world with the unchanging love of God.
