Preaching for the Future Church
This year’s theme is “Preaching for the Future Church”. The church is in decline. We need to adapt, change, to survive. We are doing church like we have never done before. But is the church really dying? Or is it dying to change? Should the church recapture what it was in the first century – a distinctive community, a confessional community, a community willing to stand against the status quo, to speak up against the empire, and to stand for the Gospel? Or pray for a new reformation? The Festival of Homiletics 2021 theme invites conversation around how the promise of the Gospel might shape hope and ministry for the future church. What is the role of preaching in forming the church of the future?
