How strange (and wonderful) a thing that Christ is with us when we sing!

CEU PAM Cert I.1
4:30 pm: Preaching Seminar (Led by: Aisha Brooks-Johnson)
"Matthew 25 - Stories from the Street"
Sermons are filled with theological reflection and practical application. Sermon illustrations bring to life the truth of God's word in tangible and tactile ways. It is important to remember how to pay attention with all of our senses as we discover God's message in real time and in unlikely places. During our time together, we will explore the art of finding surprising sermon illustrations in a diverse and digital age. Remember, your next sermon illustration is either a click, a blink, or a breath away!
