This evenings worship service is being sponsored by The Pulpit Fiction Podcast.
The hosts, Robb McCoy and Eric Fistler started the Pulpit Fiction podcast in 2013 with a New Year's Eve conversation on the need for a lectionary podcast by pastors for pastors. Inspired by SermonBrainwave, the FROGPANTS Network and other podcasters, they launched Pulpit Fiction Podcast on the first Sunday of Lent and have continued virtually uninterrupted ever since. Over 200 episodes in, they are continually looking for ways to better serve preachers, seekers and Bible geeks.
Robb and Eric are two local pastors, doing what they can to help other local pastors get ready for their sermons. The podcast includes lectionary discussion of two texts, but also includes issues related to the church, sermon prep, interacting with pop culture, and life as pastors. In addition to the weekly lectionary podcast, they have host regular conversation with authors, musicians, and sometimes invite other local pastors to join the conversation. They met in 2003 while studying at Eden Theological Seminary. Their friendship is evident in their discussions, which are laced not only with good scholarship and solid theology, but humor and candor.
Our goal is to offer various styles and methodologies of preaching in the hope that they will renew your faith and refresh your spirit through dynamic worship, lectures and workshops. Concurrent venues allow for multiple options as you plan your time at the festival. You are sure to come away with new insights and practical applications you can bring back to your congregation. Be sure to plan some down time to give yourself time to recharge and see some sights!
