The Rev. Dr. Craig A. Satterlee, Axel Jacob and Gerda Maria (Swanson) Carlson Chair of Homiletics, dean of the ACTS Doctor of Ministry in Preaching Program, and adjunct professor of theology at the University of Notre Dame, will present three lectures on "Preaching Lent and Easter" at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago on Saturday, February 28, 2009, from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. in Room 350. The lectures are free.
Craig A. Satterlee uses Mark 16:8, the women fleeing from the tomb in terror and amazement, as the starting point for an exploration of the appointed gospel readings for the Lent and Easter seasons. He asks the questions, "What is there to be afraid of? What is there to be amazed by?" Satterlee's reflections on the texts lead to Jesus, whose gift of new life will not be confined to our understanding or expectations.
Those who attend will get access to lecture outlines on Dr. Satterlee's web site.
Satterlee's latest book is When God Speaks through Worship: Stories Congregations Live By , published by The Alban Institute. It is his seventh book. He is the author of "Preaching Helps" for Currents in Theology and Mission and frequently contributes to both scholarly and ecclesiastical journals.
