The middle of May once again finds me at the Festival of Homiletics with my friends and colleagues David Breckenridge and Dan DeLeon. This year we are in San Antonio. Here's the event website. We'll join 1,200 other ministers in listening to sermons and lectures on preaching all week!
Last year's event, which I blogged extensively (the first post is here) was focused on Prophetic Preaching with pretty much every presenter pounding home every social justice issue imaginable in the midst of the election. More than once Trump the candidate was denounced last year.
So, I'll be curious how this great preachers grapple with preaching the Age of Trump, an issue I continue to wrestle with. And though the location and theme were picked long before the election, it clearly lends itself to engagement with our national catastrophe.
