ACU presents annual Lectures on Preaching Thursday

For immediate release
September 15, 2004

Abilene Christian University's annual Lectures on Preaching is scheduled for Thursday, with a theme of "Between Baptism and the Table."  Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the Biblical Studies Building at ACU, with four presentations throughout the day taking place in the Chapel on the Hill, concluding with worship at 4 p.m.

"We want to discuss the place and relationship of preaching to both baptism and the Lord's Supper," said Mark Love, director of ministry events.

The presentations are aimed at helping participants to see preaching within the context of worship, realizing that a sermon does not stand alone during a worship service but together with other worship activities connects the experiences of baptism and the Lord’s Supper, Love said.

Dr. Jerry Taylor of Abilene will begin the lectures Thursday morning with worship and a sermon entitled "Alive to God" at 9:10 a.m.

At 10:15 Dr. Jack Reese of Abilene will bring the theme presentation "The Sermon Between Baptism and the Lord’s Supper."

Dr. Dan Bouchell of Amarillo will close the event speaking about "Taking the Baptistery out of the Courtroom" at 3 p.m.

Break-out sessions will also be held throughout the day as well as a presentation by Dr. Stephen Johnson at 11:15 a.m. on "Resources for Preaching and Worship."

Dr. R. Vernon Boyd of Southfield, Mich., and Dr. Guss Farmer Sr. of Dallas will be recognized for their service in ministry as this year's Preacher Tribute honorees during Thursday's luncheon at noon in the Hilton Room.

Love said about 250 people, typically preachers from Texas, are expected to attend the seminar.

"We hope simply to encourage preachers and provide them with resources for their task," Love said.

The presentations are free and open to the public, but the luncheon requires reservations in advance. For more information, call 325-674-3750.
