Painter Pablo Picasso said, “When art critics get together, they talk about Art. When painters get together, they talk about where to buy turpentine.” This workshop is turpentine. It’s not about the creative process of writing those sermons that need to be ready Sunday after Sunday. Rather, it’s an exploration of practical skills, secrets, tips, and tricks that are useful in delivering those sermons – skills that we’ll steal from painters, dancers, actors, and storytellers.

In this workshop, we’ll steal from them some fundamental skills to help enable “preaching that connects."
