Dr. Jana Childers – Reaching the Well: The Preacher’s Creative Process

Here’s the details of the next University of Auckland School of Theology public lecture.

Reaching the Well: The Preacher’s Creative Process
Dr. Jana Childers

VENUE: Algie Lecture Theatre, Law Building, The University of Auckland. [9-17 Eden Crescent Auckland]
DATE/TIME: Monday 31st March, 6.00 p.m.
COST: Koha (donation).

In her School of Theology Lecture Dr Jana Childers will note that few preachers avoid the dry well. Writer’s block, faith struggles and fatigue affect many. Most spend at least the occasional sleepless Saturday night second-guessing themselves, wondering where fresh inspiration is to be found.

This lecture examines the creative process and explores links between human creativity and the work of the Holy Spirit. It points to models of creativity, patterns of practice and skillbuilding exercises that can be sources of increased creativity in preaching.
