Please join us for A Fresh Word–Noche: Metaphors for Preaching from the Darkness on Friday, February 7, 2020, from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. Speakers to include Cláudio Carvalhaes ’07, Associate Professor of Worship, Esther J. Hamori, Associate Professor of Hebrew Bible, and Jeremey Hultin, Associate Professor of Biblical Languages. Schedule to be announced.
During our time together, we will ponder the notion of darkness and its relation to light. We will engage with a variety of metaphors of darkness in stories, liturgy, art, theology, etc., and delve into the darkness of the soul, the darkness of our political-economic world and the darkness of the earth. Throughout, we’ll problematize traditional conceptions of darkness and light and see both how blackness has become a destructive metaphor and how it is a fundamental part of our lives. With that, we will search for ways to construct more expansive, liberative metaphors.
“A Fresh Word” (formerly Got Sermon?), brings the gifts of our faculty to our alumni/ae, students, neighbors, and friends who primarily serve congregations in ministries of preaching.
Tickets are $50. The cost of the event includes lunch and light refreshments.
