Join us January 21-23, 2019 in Seaside, OR for Spreading Manure in the Sanctuary: Preaching to Enliven Faith.
Taking our cue from the Gospel for the 3rd Sunday in Lent (Luke 13:1-9), we will borrow Jesus’ metaphor of digging around the fig tree and putting down manure to discern how our preaching can enliven faith within our communities. More specifically we will consider Preaching in the Midst of Pluralism; Preaching Across the Divides; Preaching Words Nobody Wants to Hear; and special attention to Preaching Lent and Easter in the Year of Luke. We will dig deeply, use all our senses, consider new sermon forms, and help one another be manure spreaders (even if that sounds messy).

**Please note that because we are at a new location this year the registration deadline is earlier than in years past. The 2019 workshop registration deadline is December 20, 2018.
