Last year I went to my first Simeon Trust preaching workshop. The speakers were David Short and David Helm, both of whom lectured on preaching through Luke’s gospel. It was fantastic! I learned a lot not only about Luke, but about a biblical approach to preaching a gospel. This year Simeon Trust is back in Toronto, with David Helm again, to speak about preaching through apocalyptic literature (i.e. Daniel, Revelation). I have the privilege of running one of the workshops, which is both exciting and scary! The following is the info from the Simeon Trust website. I highly, highly recommend going to this if you’re interested in preaching. If you’ve been preaching for twenty years or you’re new to it you will benefit from the time spent. Churches! Send your pastors!
|Whether in the movies, television or popular music, the idea of Apocalyptic Literature is everywhere. It’s filled with spectacular drama, striking imagery and end-times relevance. Yet, preachers avoid it. Join David Helm and enter with him through the door of Apocalyptic Literature—to gain the necessary tools for preaching and teaching these important and often overlooked texts.|
