In a world so radically altered by new technologies, the
collision of cultures, and shortened attention spans, the 30-minute monologue
may seem like a relic of another age. Preaching has never been more challenging
than today. Yet there is great potential
in this ancient art form. To unleash it
requires that we become more deeply rooted people, with a firm grasp on
cultural change, the power of language, and the fundamental human longing.
students will develop a project assessing themselves and their preaching context by integrating their understanding of biblical lenses, spiral dynamics, NLP, and spiritual practice.
