Word & World

A Preaching Seminar with Dr Paul Windsor

24 | 25 | 26 May 2018

Does your preaching need a fresh ‘shot in the arm’?

Effective preaching always shares two great attributes: it is faithful to Scripture and it is sensitive to culture.

It exegetes both the word of God and the world of our listeners – and brings the two together.

Whether you are a veteran preacher with years on the clock or a young preacher just starting the journey, this seminar will sharpen your ability to open up Scripture and culture, word and world.

Seminar Programme

9.30 – 11.00     Unpacking the word: ten resting places

11.30 – 1.00     Unpacking the world: ten arresting pictures

1.45 – 3.00       Word and world: a case study

3.30 – 4.30       Model sermon and interaction

The first session will take a fresh look at ten key biblical passages to help us unpack the Scriptures.

The second session will assemble ten biblical images or pictures that can serve as a checklist for preachers when exegeting the world or the culture of their listeners.

In the afternoon we will move from theory to practise.

In the final session Paul will preach a sermon, and there will be opportunity for lots of interaction. 

Alumni Stories

John Tucker

Principal of Carey and Lecturer in Homiletics

I’m really excited about these seminars.  I often hear preachers talk about the importance of unpacking both the word and the world when they preach, but that’s easier said than done.

Theological training often equips preachers to exegete Scripture, but cultural exegesis can feel a lot more mysterious and difficult. Most preachers lack a simple methodology for doing this well.

This seminar is designed to plug that gap. It will be very practical and interactive.
