Preaching for Today’s Church (SMP42/62)

Pre-requisites: PC447/647/CP01and CP02a

2018 Semester 2 Tuesday Daytime Unit

In our churches every week are people wrestling with life’s difficulties. The problems of death, disease, political unrest and terrorism create considerable angst and fear. In today’s church how do we address God’s people dealing with such turmoil? How do we communicate the timeless truths of the gospel and connect them with our broken world? How does Christ make a difference? In what ways do people best hear and understand these truths? How does the Bible speak to our deepest longings?

In ‘Preaching for Today’s Church’, we will explore ways of shepherding people as we lead through preaching. Building on the foundations of ‘Introduction to Preaching’ (PC447/647), this unit furthers our understanding of the medium of preaching by evaluating different styles of communication, how we understand the culture in which we preach, as well as reflecting on how to interpret and preach different parts of the Bible.
