Effective preaching has always required a mix of inspiration, eloquence, and hard, hard work. It is craft, not gift, and the cultural shifts of the last decade have left preachers with a daunting combination of challenges. The 2013 National Episcopal Preaching Conference will examine the shifts, consider the challenges, and share ways to refine our craft for faithful proclamation of the Gospel in the years to come. The conference will provide a mix of lectures, panel discussions, and workshops, in the glorious setting of Christ Church Cathedral, where we will also worship, pray, and join in fellowship and conversation. We welcome preachers of all traditions to join us!
