Preaching in a Polarized Culture: A Pilgrimage to Washington DC

Sponsored by the Florida Institute of Preaching and the Marcy Fund

April 20-22, 2022 | Washington DC

In a country that is increasingly divided along party lines, preachers and pastors face the challenge of engaging the significant questions of our common civic life from the pulpits of our churches. In this three-day pilgrimage to our nation's capital, United Methodist pastors from the Florida Annual Conference are invited to engage with pastors serving in Washington about how they hold Gospel commitments and public issues together in their preaching.

Joining the group in conversation will be Ginger Gaines-Cirelli (Foundry UMC), Bill Lamar (Metropolitan AME) and Donna Claycomb Sokol (Mount Vernon Place UMC). Facilitating these conversations will be Jim Harnish, Christine Parton Burkett, and Nathan Kirkpatrick. 

This event has reached capacity. Other pilgrimages will be announced soon.
