Event description

Description

Join us for the 2017 Covenant Seminary Preaching Lectures.

Every fall a gifted preacher shares their wisdom about how to better preach and teach the Bible. This year we welcome Mark Meynell from Langham Partnership in the U.K. If you are a pastor or seminary student we would love for you to join us. Free and open to the public. (Covenant Seminary students need not register).


About:

The status of preaching today will only be revitalized if it is allowed to escape the trappings of church celebrity culture and the cult of human power. A sermon should be nothing less than a divine event of corporate edification and sustenance. But for that to happen, it will demand a preacher’s deepest humility and a congregation’s re-oriented expectations.


Schedule:


Session 1: "Christ has Died: Preaching and Corporate Memory 8:30-9:30am
Session 2: Chapel Sermon 10:00-10:40am
Session 3: Christ is Risen: Preaching and Corporate Identity 11:00-Noon
Session 4: 12:15-1:00pm Lunch, Q&A with Students
Break
Session 5: Christ Will Come Again: Preaching and Corporate Hope 1:45-3:00pm


Speaker:


Mark Meynell is Associate Director (Europe & Caribbean) for Langham Preaching (a programme of Langham Partnership), and part-time Whitehall Chaplain for HM Treasury, HMRC & the Cabinet Office, UK.

From 2005-2014, he was on the senior ministry team of All Souls Langham Place, where he and his family are still members. Prior to that he taught biblical studies at a small seminary in Kampala, Uganda for four years, and did student work at Christ Church, Fulwood and St Ebbe’s Oxford.

He is passionately concerned to cross the bridge between the Bible’s world and the contemporary world. He’s crazy about music (from Bach to Bono), art (from Raphael to Rothko), fiction (esp John le Carré & Graham Greene) and movies (from The Third Man to Grand Budapest Hotel). He has even allowed his son to convince him to join him as a Sheffield Wednesday supporter.

He is the author of a number of books:

Cross-Examined (IVP, 1998)

Good Book Guide to Colossians (GBC, 2008)

The Resurrection (10ofThose, 2013)

What Makes Us Human? (GBC, 2015)

A Wilderness of Mirrors: Trusting Again In A Cynical World. (Zondervan, 2015)
