Can preaching again have something to say?
This blog marks the attempt to bring the theological vision of Radical Orthodoxy into the worship and preaching of the local church.

Advent 2005

Below are listed the weeks of Advent and the specific preaching themes I will be following for Advent. In terms of Radical Orthodoxy, I am focusing heavily on the idea of gift- the gift that is Christ, the very unexpected nature of this gift as an infant and as a returning Messiah, the way the gift is received, participated in, and shared, etc. I will be interested to hear your thoughts and comments.
