    CEP 2020 Summer Seminar Application Due Date

    Preachers know that part of their job is to help disciples of Christ Jesus lead faithful lives as citizens of God’s kingdom. To do this well, eventually sermons need to talk about our sins as well as ways to combat such sins and to, as Paul wrote to the Galatians, “keep step with the Spirit.” But how can we keep the focus on grace and on Gospel Good News even when addressing sin and its antidotes? Can we proclaim the Gospel in every sermon even when addressing morality and the shape of the faithful life? The seminar will look at the traditional list of Seven Deadly Sins to ponder not only these besetting sins (and their interconnections) but also how to keep a focus on grace in our preaching even when talking about the need to live as disciples. Continuing education credits are available. Leaders: Cornelius Plantinga, Jr., Calvin Theological Seminary President Emeritus, Senior Research Fellow, Calvin Institute of Christian Worship Scott Hoezee, Calvin Theological Seminary Professor of Preaching, Director of the Center for Excellence in Preaching. Funds provided by the Center for Excellence in Preaching (CEP) at Calvin Theological Seminary
