Dr. Schade is passionate about preaching that builds bridges and develops collaborative efforts around divisive issues in the church and this workshop will focus on equipping you to learn the “sermon-dialogue-sermon” method to help your congregation address social issues in ways that find common ground.
Key to this endeavor is using a method of civil discourse called “deliberative dialogue” developed by the Kettering Foundation for finding common values among politically diverse participants. Preaching in the Purple Zone equips clergy to help their congregations respectfully engage in deliberation about “hot topics,” find the values that bind them together, and respond faithfully to God’s Word.
The training will take place completely online and the cost to you is only $20. The moderator will be in touch with you once you register and will send you the necessary zoom links.
