AT345: Spirituality of Preaching
AT345: SPIRITUALITY OF PREACHING PRACTICUM
Preaching is a form of spiritual guidance, certainly for hearers, but also for preachers. This course invites in-depth exploration of the experience of preaching, both for those who preach and those who listen to sermons, seeing the ministry of proclamation as a means through which God in the power of the Holy Spirit forms us and ultimately works to transform us. The course is open to both students seeking credit and to auditors. For-credit students will prepare a sermon before the course, deliver the sermon during class time, and in the weeks following the class, write a final paper that is a theological and spiritually autobiographical commentary on their sermon. Auditors will be literally this: Participating in class activities and discussions, they will engage the spirituality of the preaching moment from the perspective of those who hear. This course is appropriate for anyone drawn to the ministry of proclamation, including experienced clergy and seminarians, and lay persons who wish to gain the tools to derive greater spiritual benefit from their experience of sermons. Enrollment of for-credit students is limited to ten.
