Event description

Description

Preaching as Proclamation led by the Revd Tim Marks - Training for Clergy and LLM's

Preaching is not only talk about God but miraculous talk by God.

It is not of the nature of this God to be silent, to be still, to refuse to communicate, to hold back and fail to give...preaching 'works' because God intends to speak.

Preachers must disciple their lives so that there is no time in the pastoral week when a sermon is not in process, when the pastor is not wrestling with the biblical text and the demands of the congregational context. I believe the roots of clerical sloth are theological rather than primarily psychological. As gospel preachers, preaching in the shadow of the cross, we get to talk about something and someone more important than ourselves.

Clergy and LLM's preach to the church so the church may preach to the world.

9.45am arrival for a prompt start at 10am

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
