Rethinking Preaching Conference 2024: Crossing Boundaries Toward Healing

April 15 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm


The Centre for Religion and Its Contexts at Emmanuel College and Shining Waters Regional Council (The United Church of Canada) are pleased to host the third “Rethinking Preaching’ Conference.In a world that is polarized and deeply divided, the work of crossing boundaries for the sake of healing is crucial. This year’s Rethinking Preaching Conference (RPC) invites participants to consider the challenges and opportunities posed by issues such as religious difference, mental health, queer identity, race, ethnicity, culture, ability, accessibility, online technology, and multi-language contexts and their intersectional natures. The sessions will help us explore what it means to be a preacher for today. The Centre and Shining Waters invite seasoned and new preachers, students of homiletics and participants who seek to “rethink preaching” to join our conference in 2024.

Keynote speaker: Rev. Dr. Debra Mumford

Invited preacher: Rev. Dr. Cheri DiNovo

Workshop Leaders: Rev. Kimiko Karpoff, Rev. Dr. Namjoong Kim, Rev. Dr. Jake Myers and Rev. Evan Swance-Smith
