Preaching in the Power of the Spirit (with a Global-South Twist): Insights into the Spirit's Empowering of Hearers and Preachers of the Word

2020 Calvin Symposium on Worship | Seminar

Through delivery and discussion of a sermon based on a Gospel text, the first part of the seminar reflected on ways to preach a text through a global-South lens that highlights issues of marginality and welcome into God’s kingdom. Drawing from the Galilean identity of Jesus and his disciples, hearers of the Word were invited to be empowered by the Spirit to acknowledge their own marginality and called to hospitality in the world. The second part of the seminar introduced practices through which preachers of the Word can invite the Spirit to empower their preaching.
