The Gospel is proclaimed in many ways, but the human voice still makes the Word of God come alive. One of the best ways to prepare for the Advent season is to speak the words of the Bible aloud. Whether for personal devotion or public worship, engaging the texts orally brings new depth of insight and understanding.
This seminar combines speech communication, worship, and theology in an in-depth look at the lectionary texts for the Advent season. This is a full participation event—we will practice and proclaim together to explore the texts and the overall tone of the Advent season. An excellent way to prepare for Advent, brush up on presiding in worship and work with the Scripture.
