DAYTON, Ohio – United Theological Seminary (United), of Dayton, 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. ET 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.
