Preaching intends to grasp people - to reach out to, disturb, uplift and inspire people, so that they will respond in praise and in resistance, bringing about a personal transformation.
I look forward to investigating the dynamics of great preaching in the "black traditions," whatever that term means, this semester. My intent is not to disingenuously capitulate to or blindly adopt the methodology examined, but rather to find possible resonances within the context of Unitarian Universalist worship. It will be an honor and a pleasure to study with Rev. Dr. Charles Adams.
