Preaching Day 2017 – A Successful Revival
The 2017 revival of Preaching Days brought Anna Carter Florence and William Willimon – along with a full house for both Benbow Hall and Schaeffer-Ashmead Chapel – to the seminary campus for a day of learning, worship, and fellowship. LTSP President David Lose thanked St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Doylestown for its generous support of Preaching Day, support which allowed the program to be offered free. LTSP President David Lose began the day with brief remarks on the progress toward the July 2017 start of United Lutheran Seminary, the result of The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia and Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg.
The Rev. Dr. William Willimon, Professor of the Practice of Christian Ministry at Duke Divinity School, offered the morning’s lecture, followed by The Rev. Dr. Anna Carter Florence, Peter Marshall Associate Professor of Preaching and Worship at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur, Georgia, preaching at morning worship. Here is Dr. Willimon’s lecture:

The program following lunch had Dr. Florence delivering the lecture and Dr. Willimon preaching. (We hope to be granted permission to present a recording of Dr. Florence’s lecture, which was based on her upcoming book.)
