Academy of Homiletics
Even as the semester is coming to an end, various groups of the Consortium continue to be active.
I was happy to attend the opening session of the Academy of Homiletics at Wesley’s Mount Vernon Extension on Thursday evening. The Academy is a national professional group. Dr. Lucy Hogan of Wesley was one of the leaders in organizing this annual meeting. Other Consortium Professors of Homiletics helped at various points.
I was happy to be present to welcome the professors–some had come from overseas. I found the opening panel of representatives of 3 publishing houses and 4 professors most enlightening about the state of religious publishing–and especially of the publishing of homiletic materials.
As I have mentioned before on this blog one of the joys of being director of the Consortium is learning from the colleagues–and this was a great opportunity.
