5 Alive

Okay, so I'm getting more and more info about things in the North Texas Conference. Here is an event coming up that should be worth anyone's time:
The North Texas Conference Lay Speaking Ministries is pleased to offer an outstanding workshop on Teaching and Preaching to conference Clergy and Laity. Our leader will be the Rev. Dr. Alyce M. McKenzie, Associate Professor of Homiletics, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University.

Rev. McKenzie offered this topic, “Five Alive,” at the 2008 session of the Perkins Theological School for the Laity in March. At that time, she limited her focus to the study of scripture using our five senses. After the session, she was approached by participants with the idea of expanding the course to include learners' development of a sermon based on the study. Her immediate response was, “That sounds like a great idea!” This workshop grew out of that conversation.

We are also pleased that for the first time, Lay Speaking Ministries training in the North Texas Conference has been certified for continuing education credit for pastors and others. We have worked hard to bring Lay Speaking Ministries training to this level of quality, and we thank Perkins School of Theology for being our certifying partner in this endeavor.

I can provide more information later. Stay blessed...john
