In this episode we talk with long-time preacher and professor of homiletics and 2BC Scholar Emeritus, Dr. Hulitt Gloer, about the preaching event. We ponder what good listening entails and what the listener can expect from a sermon. We consider the mystery of the sermon and how it has the power to shatter reality and invoke possibility. Join us as we are challenged to be active participants in the preaching event.
“Preaching is trialogical, there are three entities involved in the preaching event. There is the preacher, the hearer and the Spirit. If the hearer is not participating, both God’s word and the preacher’s words fall on deaf ears. That triangle of preacher, hearer and God…that’s the preaching event.”
