Rev Susan Cartmell, a Massachusetts Conference UCC minister and author of "Uncommon Preaching," will be in RI to explore with other clergy her approach to preaching and lead participants through a step by step process to try some new approaches to preaching on their own. At the one day workshop, we will look at questions such as: why try a sermon series? why leave the lectionary for a few weeks? how do I begin to preach with themes?
If you are interested in discussing effective ways to move beyond exclusive use of the Common Lectionary (at least from time to time), then this may be the workshop for you.
This is designed as a "tri-conference event" at a central location for clergy from Massachusetts, RI, and Connecticut.
