There is a theory in linguistics that postulates that before we can fully know or understand an experience we have to put into words. The act of articulating our experiences or ideas into speech is part of what clarifies or edifies the truth and meaning within it. The first session will ask people to select and write about a milestone moment and write it out in a way that clearly conveys the emotion, meaning and gravitas of the moment. The second session will explore ways to tie that experience to the universal experience of being human. These are some of the core elements of sermon writing. It is not a requirement of the class to deliver a sermon. But it will teach you how your experience might be part of a larger, more universal pursuit of meaning.
