David Ludwig preaches in mid-century modern, desert, Presbyterian architecture . . . built by Dwight D. Eisenhower. . . really!

March 21, 2018

Is your church sanctuary a stop on the historical architectural tour of your city? Should I preach a series, or follow the Lectionary? Some thoughts on having a pastoral transition plan. Preaching “in season” to your “winter family” when you live in a resort community. Analog and Digital. . . Old School and Tech Savvy. . . Some tips for preaching with technology you already have. And when it comes to preaching prep. . . what do you do when you love Mondays and Tuesdays. . . but Wednesday and Thursday are the hard days. In this Episode of the Teaching Pastor we travel out to the desert to have a conversation with David Ludwig, Senior Pastor of Palm Desert Community Presbyterian Church.
