Emory University preaching expert to speak

Posted June 15, 2015

Dr. Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology, will tackle important questions facing 21st-century preachers at a Lunch and Learn event on Monday, June 22, 11:30 a.m., in Abilene Christian University’s Hunter Welcome Center.

Long will speak on the topic, Preaching in More Than One Voice: Addressing the Multiple Needs of Congregations Today.

Noting that congregations increasingly contain people with multiple needs, varying faith relationships and many different listening patterns, Long poses the question, “How can preachers, without losing the integrity of their own ministry, speak in differing voices to these hearers, and what are the voices most urgently needed today?” Long will offer insightful observations from his years of experience as an author, minister and instructor of preaching.

The luncheon is offered by ACU’s Siburt Institute for Church Ministry. Tickets are $20 each, and registration deadline is noon Wednesday, June 17.
