Through moments of spiritual reflection and opportunities for prayer and study, participants will consider how you may incorporate spiritual care into your sermon preparation and preaching. In addition to brief lectures and small group discussions, we will look and listen to God’s presence with one another and there will be opportunities to draw from spiritual exercises in developing an upcoming sermon.
