“The Shared Pulpit”…Shared Ministry

The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Peninsula would like to offer the course based on Erika Hewitt’s book, The Shared Pulpit: A Sermon Seminar for Lay People. This will be the fourth time offering this popular course.

Shared Pulpit is a complete workshop to help lay people gain experience writing and preaching a full-length sermon for their congregation. Workshop members learn about the theory and theology of preaching, then practice writing and speaking with authenticity, gradually building toward composing quality 20-minute sermons. Workshop leaders learn to foster a supportive environment in which participants offer one another helpful feedback. The Shared Pulpit includes readings for homework, sample sermons and exercises to help first-time preachers polish their preaching craft.

Learn how writing can be a spiritual practice. Enjoy the support and encouragement from peers who love to hear your ideas. Get to know each other on a deeper level.​

UUFP's 2019 Shared Pulpit Class starts soon, and we're looking for people who enjoy the process of crafting a message (whether or not they actually want to deliver it as a sermon!).

We're trying to find class times that work for the most people. If you're interested in joining us in this spiritual fellowship, please let us know your best times by following the link below!***
