United Theological Seminary Announces Return of Preaching Workshop
Dayton, OH, Seminary’s Preaching Lent and Holy Week: Dying and Rising with Christ Set for Feb. 7

DAYTON, OH – United Theological Seminary (United), of Dayton, OH, announces the return of Preaching Lent and Holy Week: Dying and Rising with Christ on Feb. 7.

This one-day workshop will focus on proclaiming the Gospel lessons that are the foundation of these Forty Days. Led by Dr. Richard Eslinger and Dr. Joni Sancken, the preaching workshop will begin at 8:45 a.m. at United, 4501 Denlinger Road, Dayton, OH 45426.

Proclaiming the gospel during the season of Lent is both a daunting task and an incredible joy. During Year A of the ecumenical calendar and lectionary, the Scripture lessons are retrieved from the life of the early church and are about the renewal of personal faith and communal faithfulness. As St. Tertullian observed, “Christians are made, not born.” Preaching during the Lenten journey of the faithful and those seeking faith is at the heart of our ministry of making new Christians.

For more information, including the complete schedule, or to register, visit United’s website or contact Georgia Alexander at or 937.529.2201.

United Theological Seminary, now in its 143rd year, is one of the fastest growing theological schools in the United States. It was founded in 1871 by Milton Wright, a Bishop in The United Brethren Church and father of Wilbur, Orville and Katharine Wright. United offers accredited, innovative graduate and non-degree education programs for both clergy and laity. See for more information

The United Methodist Reporter wants to encourage lively conversation about The United Methodist Church and our articles in the belief that Christian conversation (what Wesley would call conferencing) is a means of grace. While we support passionate debate, we cannot allow language that demeans or demonizes others, and we reserve the right to delete any comment we believe to be harmful or inappropriate. We encourage all to remember that we are all broken and in need of Christ's grace, and that we all see through the glass darkly until that time we when reach full perfection in love. May your speech here be tempered with love, and reflection of the fruits of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. After all, "There is no law against things like this." (Galatians 5:22-23)
