The Sanctification of Space and Time and Homiletics 4
Lecture 1B14: We explore how all things in the spacetime continuum can be transformed, made holy, by the God who is the only absolute frame of reference for all things that are both relative to each other and contingent upon Him.

The Sanctification of Matter and Life and Homiletics 5
Lecture 1B15: Orthodox worship is sacramental through and through. Both the goodness of the created order and the fullness of the Incarnation require that the physical realm be venerated as a vehicle for the spiritual. In this lecture we consider the implications for anthropology, sacramental theology and iconography. The homiletics section explores best practice in sermon preparation and composition.

They embody the gospel life and show just how possible and necessary it is to aim for sanctity in our Christian lives. In the homiletics section we look at how appropriate content is chosen and arranged in a sermon or teaching session.

Liturgical Space and Homiletics 7
Description: Lecture 1B17: Church Architecture is as much concerned with presenting the gospel as the icons that our temples contain. This lecture traces historical developments in Rome and then in the Christian east. The homiletics talk examines how effective preachers and teachers use (and not abuse) the Scriptures, the Fathers and the Lives of the Saints in their pedagogy and proclamation.
