Bishop's Lay Worship Leaders: Training

The spring Bishop's Lay Worship Leaders Continuing Education Event will be held Saturday, 25 March 2017, at Saint Paul Lutheran Church, 309 Baldwin Street, Morgantown, West Virginia, beginning at 10:00 AM and concluding sometime around 2:00 PM.

The topic will be "Politics and Preaching". Pastor Jerry Kliner will lead the sessions.

From Pastor Kliner: We asked ourselves the question: "What's a happening topic for preachers these days?" and one obvious answer facing all of our Preachers is "Politics." What are the differences and the overlapping nature between Preaching (as proclamation) and "politics" (as regards civil order)? What are the necessities and the hazards of such proclamation? What are the legal, ethical, and moral standards and repercussions of Preaching when it comes to political issues? All of these are dilemmas facing Preachers, especially in a politically charged atmosphere. COME WITH YOUR QUESTIONS!!!

As in previous sessions, lunch is on your own - there are several dining establishments in the neighborhood.
