Preaching in the Midst of Crisis

This is a cultural moment marked by pervasive disorientation, anxiety, uncertainty, polarization, and isolation. What is the task of preaching in the midst of such a crisis? What is the cost of homiletical “business as usual”? How do we resource sermons that dare more than the typical “homiletical punt on third down”? This conversation will engage the Psalms as a model for the kind of linguistic and theological audacity the moment demands.

Rev. Dr. Lance Pape, Granville and Erline Walker Associate Professor of Homiletics and Director of Disciples Formation
