In 2020, Preaching WELL will return to the Trinity Center in Pine Knoll Shores. Mark your calendars for April 27-29, and prepare to fill your soul and mind as we gather together for worship, workshops, and collective sermon planning.
Theme: “Recalibrate: Cultivating Gospel Imagination”
Speakers: Sarah Heath and Lauren Wright Pittman (see speaker bios)
Who is invited? Anyone who proclaims from the pulpit and is interested in a time apart to drink from a spiritual well, retreat with colleagues, and plan sermons and series based on the liturgical calendar.
What to expect? The retreat is intended to provide a transformational time away with worship, quiet time, and collaborative sessions for planning sermons and sermon series. These sessions include time to read and reflect on lectionary scriptures, generate ideas in small groups, and report back on the best ideas generated during collaborative planning.
What is the schedule? The retreat will begin with lunch on Monday, April 27, and will conclude just before lunch on Wednesday, April 29. There will be built-in time for breaks, with a longer break on Tuesday afternoon to allow for time to walk on the beach and enjoy the surroundings. Also, while Monday evening will be free, plan for a campfire with s’mores and storytelling with Sarah Heath on Tuesday evening. See full schedule here.
