Online Lectionary Lunches
Join Austin Seminary’s newest faculty for a series of online lectionary conversations starting this fall!
There are many wonderful, weekly lectionary resources available for sermon prep (including the Connections commentary series). What we’re offering here is something just a little different – a live conversation with a scholar about a book that’s featured prominently in Lectionary Year A. Your lectionary host will share about the book’s themes, threads you might draw upon in preaching, and the latest scholarship. You will get a chance to ask your questions and brainstorm sermon ideas.
Come meet our incredible new members of the Biblical Department and get your creative juices flowing for the Year A ahead. For lectionary-based preachers and anyone interested in conversation on biblical texts.
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:30 PM CT
Cost: $15 per session
