This six-week series is designed to help participants become more conscious and thoughtful while listening to preaching, helping them become more intentional disciples. Each week, participants will listen together to a recorded homily and reflect on how it moved them to an encounter with Christ. $10 donation per session requested.
Goals of this course:
· To learn more about the dynamics of creating homilies.
· To listen to homilies with themes of Christmas, Ordinary Time and Lent
· To develop the craft of effective listening to homilies.
· To examine interpretations of Scripture passages.
· To become familiar with the five thresholds of discipleship (trust, curiosity, openness, seeking, intentional discipleship) as described in the book, Forming Intentional Disciple: The Path to Knowing and Following Jesus, written by Sherry Weddell.
· To give preachers feedback on how their homily is helping participants on their journey to discipleship.
