February 19, 2014 thru December 4, 2014: The Lectionary at Lunch: Preaching With Preachers

Would you like feedback on what went well in the pulpit last Sunday? Are you open to ways in which you can enhance your own ministry of preaching? Please stop in for "The Lectionary at Lunch: Preaching With Preachers" series which runs weekly from Wednesday, February 19, 2014 through December 4, 2014 in Stewart Lounge, Colgate Rochester Divinity School.

Preachers, community members and students meet each week from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. to share in reflection and discussion of Common Lectionary readings. Regarding preaching as a communal vocation undertaken in partnership, attendees deepen their appreciation for the variety of contexts in which the Word is proclaimed.

Dr. Barbara A. Moore, D.Min., RSM and Director of Women and Gender Studies in Church and Society at CRCDS facilitates these sessions, which are free and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to bring their own food and drink for lunch. 

Note: No gathering on March 12, 2014 or April 23, 2014.MOORE
