The Preaching Institute hosts one-day events on the Beeson campus in order to provide ongoing education and encouragement to preachers in their lives and ministries. Events include conversations with Beeson professors around their research and teaching, as well as workshops that address the homiletical movement of "Text to Sermon" from a variety of perspectives. Text to Sermon events are hosted on four consecutive Fridays during the fall and spring semesters. Lunch is provided for Beeson students and members of the Birmingham community. These Preaching Institute events are designed with the aim of strengthening both preachers and their preaching.
This week, Michael Novotny will speak about his Advent sermon on Matthew 24:29-44 entitled, "What Hath Judgement to do with Advent?" He will walk through his process of moving from the selected text to the delivered sermon.
This week, Sherry Harris will discuss how she moved from the text of Luke 10:25-37 to her delivered sermon, "Hello Neighbor."
