PREACHING CAMP INTRODUCES LECTIONARY READINGS FOR NEW CHURCH YEAR

The new lectionary year begins on December 1, 2019, with the First Sunday in Advent, Year A. The Region of Indiana is hosting a Lectionary Preaching Camp to introduce the Gospel of Matthew, the main gospel in the new year, and to think about important ways in which passages and themes in Matthew intersect with main themes in the Christian Year with some attention to other readings.

The leader is Ron Allen, who taught preaching and Gospels and Letters at Christian Theological Seminary for 37 years before retiring in 2019. Ron’s most recent book is I Will Tell You the Mystery: A Commentary on Preaching from the Book of Revelation (2019)

Participants will not come away with complete sermons. But they should come away with exegetical, theological, hermeneutical, and homiletical questions and possibilities. The plan is to name the toughest theological questions and look them in the eye.

This camp will be offered Tuesday, October 22 at First Christian Church, Rochester
