A Workshop with Bishop Will Willimon
“Christian preaching is that joyful vocation whereby we are called to talk about Jesus Christ
rather than ourselves, our assumed needs, or even our congregations.” (from Will Willimon’s
new book ‘How Odd of God: Called to the Vocation of Preaching’, Westminster / John Knox,
Fall, 2015) This workshop will focus upon sustaining the peculiar qualities required for Christian
preaching as a theological task.
