Societas Homiletica – day six

Incoming President Alexander Deeg receiving wishes of good luck from
outgoing President Dawn Ottoni-Wilhelm
Last day of the conference. Already on our way back to Sweden. Today we only had two sessions. First business meeting, which for instance means electing a new President and new board members. But also tabling applications from us who want to become members of the association.

There were 21 new applications and I was one of them. All 21 were accepted (they usually are), so I can gladly announce that I now am a full member of Societas Homiletica. A good network for inspiration and sharing of ideas and research.

The conference ended with a Worship Service. The closing hymn is also my prayer:
Be Thou my Vision, O Lord of my heart
Naught be all else to me, save that Thou art
Thou my best Thought, by day or by night
Waking or sleeping, Thy presence my light
