Caring for the Preacher's Soul: Preaching Workshop with Craig Barnes
The soul of the faithful preacher is a crucible in which the holy words of God get mixed together with the ordinary words collected all week long through hospital visits, committee meetings, and pastoral counseling, as well as those from the newspapers and social media. The sermon is where this holy conversation becomes a sacred moment.

The greatest danger to the sacredness of the sermon is the pastor’s own soul. Sometimes our souls get in trouble because of something going on in the congregation or our relationships. At other times the issue is our own struggle with God. Often, we are just soul weary.

This workshop will consider the unique threats to the pastor’s soul, and it will explore the ways the Holy Spirit renews and enlivens us for the spiritually vulnerable act of climbing behind a pulpit to say, “Hear the Word of the Lord.”
