In these days when cries for justice are especially audible, how does the preacher find the right words?
Join us tomorrow for a webinar, Poets, Prophets, and Preaching.
We’ll dig into some 8th century prophets and modern poets, find out what they have in common, and see what we can learn from both about speaking truth into difficult days.
Poets, Prophets, and Preaching
Presented by the Center for Leadership Excellence
with Chad Wright Pittman
Tuesday, June 2, 1pm EST
(should last no longer than one hour)
About the Webinar:
The 8th century prophets and many modern poets have at least one thing in common: they know how to effectively use metaphor, symbolism, and poetic language to communicate about deeper and higher ideals… Let’s take a look at both ancient and modern uses of poetry and see how they might inform our preaching today, in hopes of flexing and stretching our own prophetic muscles that we might point toward God’s vision of justice for the world.
