About this event
This free online seminar is titled, Preaching Problematic Passages: How to Teach Difficult Texts with Sensitivity. It is organised by the Bible, Gender and Church Research Centre.
Our first speaker is Lynita Conradie, Methodist minister in the Harrow & Hillingdon Circuit. Lynita has recently completed her professional doctorate in Practical Theology at Chester University with her thesis: 'How Could the British Methodist Church Preach More Effectively on Domestic Abuse as Part of its Prophetic Witness?'. Her paper will focus on domestic violence in the Methodist Church and the practice of preaching on the topic.
We will then hear a response from Bekah Legg. Bekah is the CEO of Restored, a Christian charity with a mission to speak up about violence against women and equip the Church to stand against domestic abuse and to support survivors. Her talk will focus on the Levite’s Concubine in Judges 19 and constructing a sermon on this difficult passage. She will also talk about how her research on the passage has affected her current practice. After the papers, there will be time for discussion and Q+A.
