Mentoring With Morgan

Hi <<First Name>>,

How does one faithfully articulate God's dream in the 21st century? What role does mentoring play?

Their journey began in Seminary. Morgan was the Director of Field Education. Karen was a student. In 2002, Morgan and Karen began to have weekly meetings to discuss the message Karen would deliver at her Field Education church. After leaving Seminary, Karen and Morgan corresponded by email. Morgan read Karen's sermon draft, sent comments, and Karen revised her sermons. They both learned a great deal.

Mentoring with Morgan book explores the world of mentoring and the development of better preaching. In these pages — and throughout their relationship — they discuss theology, Biblical interpretation, delivery, the challenges of pastoral ministry, and global events. In the journey, they learned that each sermon provides a new beginning to better preaching, and deeper understanding of God.

Praise For Mentoring with Morgan

“Deeply moving ... When I finished Schlack’s book, I felt like I’d been on a rafting trip with two friends, Karen and Morgan. Conversation flowed. We basked in the sunshine of ministerial wisdom. We shot through the rocks of preaching social justice. My companions were unafraid to tackle hard homiletic questions: how to preach with humility, to care about the people, to have the courage of conviction. I enjoyed the journey!”
Karla Bellinger, Associate Director, John S. Marten Program in Homiletics and Liturgics, University of Notre Dame

“Karen’s conversation partner, Dr. F. Morgan Roberts, tells her, ‘The conversation between the Christ in you and the Christ in every other life is happening all the time.’ Karen gives readers an intimate glimpse into this conversation and the sermon-making process. She shows us the transformation possible when we listen deeply to ourselves, to one another, and to Scripture.”
Lynne Smith, OSB, Presbyterian pastor and Benedictine sister at Holy Wisdom Monastery, Madison, Wisconsin

“Those of us in the pews want and need clear, understandable, inspirational preaching. Students of church ministry and even experienced preachers seek to provide that. This book gives a highly readable example of how that can be accomplished for both audiences, through a delightful mentoring experience.”
Dot Ridings, former Board Chair of Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary
