David Fleer recently sent me information about the 10th Annual Rochester College Sermon Seminar, which was hot off the presses. This year’s program, which is planned for May 21-23, 2007, is entitled: “Preaching and the World Imagined in John’s Gospel.” It looks like one of the best line up’s yet. While I’ve not been able to attend every seminar, I’ve taken in most of them. Lord willing, I’ll be there this year.
This seminar provides a time for ministers, professors, and students to interact with accessible, substantive, and faithful presenters. For a complete list of presenters, click here. Featured on this year’s roster are Richard B. Hays, the George Washington Ivey Professor of New Testament at Duke Divinity School and Gail O’Day, Associate Dean of Faculty and Academic Affairs and A.H. Shatford Professor of Preaching and New Testament at Candler Seminary, Emory University.
I would like to encourage my ministry colleagues and those interested in supporting the ministry of preaching and teaching God’s Word to join many others who will come from more than 30 states and provinces representing a diverse Christian heritage to participate in an event of highest quality. This is an eclectic group of white and black, women and men, young and old that will gather for one common purpose: to unite as Christians in the Study of John’s Gospel, so that we might be better equipped to preach to the people of God to whom we have been called. Believing the Bible is the richest resource for sustaining life and preaching, I join with David Fleer and invite you to attend the Sermon Seminar to think, talk, work, and hope!

Blessings to all,
