MINING FOR METAPHORS: Learn to recognize and mine the metaphors of scripture in preparation for semiotic sermon writing. Learn how to recognize the metaphors of scripture, how to research them for meaning, and how to build an “image exegesis” that will help you prepare a more creative sermon. A practicum webinar. Bring your favorite Bible, a computer or notepad, and be prepared to jump in!
Lori Wagner is a trained theologian, philosopher, philologist, literary analyst, weekly contributor to the Story Sermon and Image Exegesis at PreachtheStory.com, and author of The Story Lectionary. Her mastery of languages is a marvel to all who know her. Much of the “labwork” in Len’s preaching text “Giving Blood” was conceived by Lori, and she will be doing more of that here to help you move from exegeting words to exegeting metaphors. Lori is a United Methodist pastor in Pennsylvania.
