Following the episode on the Bible, Tim and Steve tackle one of the next foundation blocks in institutional religion: preaching. It is often seen as a non-negotiable when it comes to church/spiritual community practice, with a huge value placed on it’s ability to transform individuals and groups.
- Why is it seen as the pinnacle of so much community practice?
- Why the high value attributed to it’s transformative ability?
- What are some of our personal experiences of preaching and it’s impact?
- What are some of the possible egos and agendas at play in a church dynamic that keeps preaching at the top of the practice pyramid?
This episode puts down some thinking and possibilities on which a subsequent episode can build and focus on how process and embodied relational spirituality may provide much more than preaching in both it’s transformative efficacy and self & community relational integrity.
