Description

The places we spend time affect us. A home, a piece of land, a church, a camp, a certain time or season of life - every place we encounter helps to shape us and our experience of faith. What might the preacher learn from paying close attention to his or her own past and current surroundings? What stories do the location, landscape, history, and even building structure of a congregation, have to tell? Information gathered from various congregations in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, interviews with parishioners, and insight gathered from both environmental psychologists and preachers informed the writing of this book which explores the connection between place (the "where" of faith) and preaching.show more
