Many people think of an authority figure passing judgment when they heard the words preaching or homiletics. However, in its purest form, the homiletic is a spiritual care art form intended to inspire, instruct, and motivate people. This course will highlight individuality, being present, and the influence of metaphor inside a storyline. Discover the groundwork and conveyance of messages both within and beyond the consecrated setting. Appreciate what it means to speak and declare truth from a genuine perspective that stimulates, enlightens, and dares others towards healing and a common good. Course code M5900.
