Preaching II

AQF: 6/7/8/9, hybrid

Thursday Daytime Unit

PC048-612/712/812 + PC206-912 (Specialised Studies)

In our churches every week there 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 II’, we will explore ways of shepherding people as we lead through preaching. Building on the foundations of ‘Preaching I’, 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.
