The Spirit in Preaching with Teresa Fry Brown PhD

What makes a good sermon? For the preacher, it is knowing oneself, knowing the biblical text and context, knowing the people, and knowing what The Holy Spirit is speaking directly to them. It is also leaving the people hearing the sermon with some good holy questioning of their own walk with Christ and with neighbor in the world.

In this episode, Bishop Wright has a conversation with Teresa Fry Brown PhD. They share of who God is, preaching, and their understanding of The Holy Spirit. Listen in for the full conversation.
