Offered by Wycliffe College
Toronto ON
February 1, 2016
Featuring three plenary sessions with William H. Willimon, Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry at Duke Divinity School:
  • Preaching Cross: Preaching the scandal of a crucified God in a culture that thinks it already knows God.
  • Preaching Resurrection: Preaching the victory of God in a culture of therapeutic Deism.
  • The Joy of talking about Jesus crucified and resurrected rather than talking about ourselves or even our congregations.


During the afternoon, Preaching Day attendees have the opportunity to attend one of three workshops, offered by:

Rev. Dr. Annette Brownlee

Rev. Dr. Peter Holmes

Rev. Dr. Catherine Sider-Hamilton
