Preaching to the Choir

Moravian Theological Seminary’s Weber Lectures this year focus on “Preaching the Many Voices of Scripture,” a guide to making the Bible meaningful in an age of short attention spans, historical ignorance, and flattened texts: the Bible as a collection of sayings or “left behind” proofs or other one-dimensional readings.

Thomas G. Long, Bandy Professor of Preaching at Candler School of Theology, Emory University, Atlanta, will open the process of Biblical renewal as “an adventure of biblical interpretation” and a critical reading of its many modes of discourse: parables, narratives, histories, letters, arguments, poems, and apocalyptic prophecies. His presentation begins at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, March 10, in Prosser Auditorium. The program is free, but registration is requested by Friday, February 25. Ext. 7868.
