"Preaching as Moral Imagination"



Speaker Profile: Grace Imathiu

"Rev. Grace Imathiu is one who has clearly heard God's call to be a forth-teller of the Gospel. She understands that we have been given a message to proclaim. When on hears grace preach, one hears the word of God. She proclaims the 'biography of the deeds of God.' To listen to Grace preach and teach is to hear the words of the Holy Scripture come to life and become living words of faith and hope." - Dr. Eddie Fox, in an interview section of "Words of Fire, Spirit of Grace: 12 Sermons by one of the World's Best Preachers"
