Introduction to Preaching and Worship

Preaching

Preaching has, all too often, been taught either as a detached expository process with little critical reflection on culture and mission, or else as an attractional approach that spares little time for scripture. Both paradigms tend to produce preaching that is individualistic and rationalistic. This course explores another way: a missional approach to preaching that is both expository and also redemptive-historical. Hermeneutics and homiletics are held together as we explore how to preach Christ as he stands at the centre of the biblical story, as the world’s creator, healer, and servant. There is opportunity to deliver two sermons and to receive feedback on these sermons.

Worship

We will explore a biblical vision and theology of worship that nourishes the people of God in Christ, rooting us and forming us in him, in order to join with Christ in his ministry of reconciliation to the world. Throughout this course, content will be applied to both preaching and also to worship. In addition, teaching on the theology and practice of worship is woven throughout the courses related to the MDiv program. Revd. Vania Levans will join us as a guest lecturer on worship during this course.
