This is an interactive, seminar-style course on the theory and practice of preaching and worship in the Unitarian Universalist tradition. Open to all students, it will examine the theological basis for preaching in a non- or multi-scriptural tradition, emphasizing the skills of reading a text, writing a sermon, crafting a service of worship, and conducting rites of passage. A special focus will be on preaching in response to significant disasters, crises, and other momentous events in the public world.
