Uture Another astute point Tisdale makes is that pastors often point to great saints as models of Christian living and obedience Mother Teresa or pastors often point to great saints as models of Christian living and obedience Mother Teresa or Luther King Jr are pointed to as paragons of Christianity The Olympia Eric Liddell is acclaimed for his faithfulness and commitment to the fourth commandment to honour the Sabbath though I suspect most evangelicals today would say he could have ust for that one week moved his Sabbath to a Monday or Thursday since we re pretty fluid with how we interpret that commandment these days But the point is that these are larger than life figures who can seem impossible to emulate preachers may find such figures helpful to may find such figures helpful to reference to their name recognition but it is better if preachers can find examples of individuals in their congregations who model faithful Christian living because these people are members of the church and thus relatable and approachableTisdale tends to use the example of a scholarly cosmopolitan preacher fresh out of seminary who is placed in a congregation of country folk or blue collar types While it is often the case that the preacher has a greater degree of biblical and theological education not all preachers are seminary trained Additionally no effort is made to explain how a preacher from a rural community who becomes a pastor in a thriving downtown congregation is supposed to adopt that locale s ethos the assumption is always that the pastor condescends to the congregation This is true I think as Paul writes about the need to become all things to all men 1 Cor 922 but the danger in this is to also keep feeding the congregation milk instead of moving on to meat 1 Cor 32 Pastors do challenge congregants to pursue lives of greater holiness generosity hospitality etcbut do they challenge them to become better theologians everyone is a theologian This is the fundamental tension preachers should condescend but also challenge and if God is really God in my everything that must be applied holistically not ust to the practicalities and routines of daily life but also to how we critically think and engage with the world A pastor may think she is helping avoid the culture wars by not preaching on politics but in the vacuum impressionable Christians can be tempted by the strong man If the pastor believes the sermon is not the place for deeper biblical and theological exposition does the church offer adult Sunday school classes that can fill this needOne wonders if Tisdale sometimes overstates the importance of local theology and contextualization She is correct I think in advocating that preachers pay attention to the subcultures in their congregation but subcultures can be fluid indeed often the pastor exercises tremendous influence over a congregation s local theology If a pastor is a talented spoken word artist he may introduce ways for artists in the congregation to show and share their work and incorporate it into worship How long lasting is a congregation s local theology especially in a metropolis that has a transient Christian populace and freuent changes to the church s staff Even denominational distinctives which used to play a significant role in congregational identity have dissipated as the Christian who grew up Baptist switches to a hip new Anglican church plant before settling into a neighbourhood Presbyterian church I truly do appreciate this book and its championing of local theology and folk art I ve become snobbish when it comes to literature the form of art I most gravitate towards but folk art is different from bad art like Thomas Kinkade or The Shack It reflects the beauty of down to earth amateur yet authentic creativity and tradition This was also the first book on preaching I read and I majored in sociology in undergrad so I really did appreciate the way she wove homiletics contextualization and ethnography together Worthwhile read on contextualization for preaching A good and important book when it comes to preaching Every preaching book I have read has always mentioned the importance of relating to your audience but this book takes it a step farther In a world where mega church pastors can be downloaded on the internet one begins to wonder why one goes to church at all Why go hear a sermon by an average speaker who bobbles his words when I can get a person who has been educated in communications Well this book bores a huge hole in the idea that universal modes of media ie Mega church pastors internet radio televangelists can help you explore your life with God in your context This book is written for the pastor person in ministry who is trying to get their congregation to live out God s call in their particular context An important work on the neglected task of exegeting the congregation recipient of the preached message Tisdale addresses a much needed topic in the area of ministry and preaching She seeks to help a local preacherpastor wed awareness of the text w Loved this book on preaching as local theology and how to exegete a congregation Dr Tisdale is often speaking to academics and responding to academics than she is to ministers in this book yet it still contains very helpful information I recommend this to anyone who wants a balance in their preaching so often homiletics is taught as exegeting a text but rarely does the audience come into play in forming a sermon Dr Tisdale shows why local theology in the form of a sermon is vital. Ring sermons that are meaningful and appropriate Tisdale draws from contextual theology and congregational studie. D culture shock because she couldn t connect well with country blue collar types She didn t know how to address the connect well with country blue collar types She didn t know how to address the and values they cherished this book was published in 1997 but we can glimpse the cosmopolitan country divide that came out in the 2016 election and she notes that the examples and illustrations that her seminary professors had recommended she employ were city centric a young woman serving in ministry in a rural community came by the bookstore I work at one day and commented that the author who really spoke to the people in her church was Wendell Berry Seminaries may train prospective pastors in the minutiae of exegesis Christian history and Karl Barth but often prospective pastors in the minutiae of exegesis Christian history and Karl barth but often is a world away from but often is a world away from common sense ethos of those in the congregation in fact Tisdale humourously recounts how one of her country congregants thought she was referencing Karl Marx not Karl Barth during one of her sermons the congregant not knowing who Barth was p 8 129 This is an important point For some years now I ve had this imaginary figure in my mind who is a chain smoking grandmother who works at Wal Mart and lives in a trailer park in Kentucky and who is a devout Christian than I am in order to keep me grounded and not egocentric At the same time part of preaching is also teaching and I think the pastor has a role to elucidate and instruct their congregants we are holistic beings and preaching should balance warming hearts with sharpening mindsTisdale draws heavily upon cultural anthropology in explaining that some people are 1 like all others 2 like no others and 3 like some others p 11 Thus there are certain universals we can generally assume but we must also be aware of contested beliefs and practices and the reality of individual uniueness This focus on the importance of contextualization is predominant throughout her book She asserts a highly poetic elouent sermon that inspires an upper middle class congregation may flop when given in a church made up of mostly blue collar types and what appeals to the blue collar types might not connect with those in the upper middle class church Tisdale also draws attention to the emerging interdisciplinary field of congregational studies which weds the social sciences cultural anthropology sociology social psychology organizational development and theology in an effort to gain a better understanding of congregational identity and action p 29 She believes congregations need prophets poets and professional theologians each guiding and offering their gifts to the church in their own uniue ways p 54Pastors occupy a strange position within the congregation as both outsider and insider p 49 52 They wield spiritual authority that sets them apart but Tisdale notes that as pastors serve and care for their congregants they also come to know the messiness of their lives p 11 12 Large services can sometimes have such a vast assortment of people including guests that sermons may be to a generalized audience but in a smaller congregation how does a pastor preach on divorce when they are well aware one of their worship leaders and his wife are going through a divorce This is a sobering point to stress as I sometimes think I would be too timid to preach a sermon with a particular individual or couple in mind preaching a generalized sermon allows for the safety of anonymity but it also foregoes the possibility of personal intentional connectionWhile denominations often have their own subculture congregations themselves have their own subculture or even subcultures The subculture is established by an idiom both verbal eg favourite worship songs and nonverbal rituals arts worship etc While preachers often do not come from the same subculture as their congregation they have a duty to preach to that subculture or subcultures p 15 16 Some churches are oriented towards social ustice others towards doctrine This is one of the uandaries with affirming diversity because sometimes this is simply lip service I do think every church has a generation orientation in its identity but if anything a church that acknowledges its strength should be even intentional about shoring up its areas of weakness Preaching has a direct effect on this since sermons that are doctrinal attract those interested in theology while those that stress the social gospel attract those committed to social ustice Tisdale exhorts pastors to proclaim the faith in its relation to the wider historic Church as well as Christians in the Majority World while also composing their sermons with attentive detail to their congregation s local theology p 39 Tisdale emphatically champions stories as a way to understand the ethos and identity of a congregation p 65 67 Tisdale shows us how congregations interpret and understand metaphysical uestions relating to God theology and the Church She exhorts preachers to pay attention to seven areas within their congregation 1 view of God theology Christology pneumatology 2 view of humanity theological anthropology 3 view of nature theology of Creation 4 view of time eschatology 5 view of the Church ecclesiology 6 view of Christian mission evangelism missiology social ethics and 7 interrelationships among the above concerns cosmology soteriology revelation p 80 86 Within this list she breaks down different perspectives for instance regarding time do people in the congregation most orient themselves to the past the present or to the Nalyze a congregation to fit a sermon to the audience The book then gives practical help for preparing and delive. ,
Tisdale s approach to looking at the local church as the place to start for sermon topics and illustrations is not This book made me feel inspired to preach and allowed me to view preaching through some different lenses This is the only preaching book written by a female that has been assigned at my seminary and is a perspective that we desperately need and need of The variety of contextualization methods are super helpful My criticism with this text is that it seems to come off as condescending as the distinction is drawn between cosmopolitan and local people At one point pastors are uoted who are cosmopolitan who minister
In Small Town Local Congregations 
small town local congregations feel lonely because THEY THINK THEY CAN T USE LITERARY AND USE LITERARY AND think they can t use literary and poetry in their sermons because people won t get it Besides this issue I was really inspired by the book I recently re read Preaching as Local Theology and Folk Art This was one of my favorite books in seminary and now that I m in my first full time preaching ministry I wanted to see how it held up in the actual practice of full time ministry What I found is how much this book has already influenced and continues to influence my thinking and approach to preaching Tisdale insists that preachers must become as adept at exegeting local congregations as they are at exegeting biblical texts In order to proclaim the gospel in a way that is seriously imaginable for a particular group of people the preacher must learn to carefully attend to the particularities of the culture in which she or he finds herself or himself Tisdale borrowing from the field of cultural anthropology offers several strategies to assist local pastors with this work of congregational exegesis In her estimation it is this three way intersection the careful analysis of a congregation s culture the thoughtful study and reflection on biblical texts and the mysterious workings of the Holy Spirit that provides the conditions to birth a truly contextual preaching ministry That is sermons in which the gospel is proclaimed in such a way that it is heard in the native language of the hearers This kind of preaching has the best possibility of oining God s creative work in transforming local congregations to provide a viable Christian witness in the midst of the local context in which they find themselvesSadly given the current trend of multi site church campuses on line churches and Teaching Pastors whose reach is expected to be near universal Tisdale s thesis may be getting buried beneath the dust of the steady progression of time and changing circumstances There is much to be excited about concerning innovative churches that are finding creative ways to respond to globalization and who are embracing technology as an avenue to expand the reach of the gospel However what stands to be lost are pastors and churches who are dedicated to finding local expressions of faith and practice that pay attention to the beautiful and various manifestations of local culture around the world Instead of a response to globalization that celebrates and highlights the wonderful diversity of God s creative expression found in cultures these efforts run the risk of flattening out the language and practice of faith so that all local expressions of faith become subsumed by the majority cultureAnother creative response to the challenges and opportunities arising from globalization is for churches and pastors to ask not how do we make our reach universal but how do we make it very very local How do we respond to the particular gifts and particular challenges of a particular set of people called to serve a very particular community In this way churches might be euipped with language practices and theology that already places them in conversation and contact with their neighbors Paul may have been called to be all things to all people but the local pastors and elders who preached taught loved and served the local congregations he established were no less a part of God s ministry to the world If your ministry like mine is less akin to a globe trotting missionary or visionary multi site church planter and akin to one of these local pastors I highly recommend this book As pastors work with congregations they need practical ways to analyze the culture and subculture of the congregation and community so that they can preach relevantly In Preaching as Local Theology and Folk Art Leonora Tubbs Tisdale discusses the disconnect that sometimes occurs between preachers and their congregations and advocates for greater contextuality in preaching She argues that proclaiming the gospel in relevant and transformative ways reuires preachers to become adept at exegeting their congregation and its context and then goes on to describe ways to accomplish this through uestions and research While the book lacks practical guidelines for transforming the information gathered into tangible metaphors and s Leonora Tubbs Tisdale is very conscientious of our need to practice and preach in an appropriate context She recounts how she and her husband went to South Korea as missionaries for a year and how they were prepared through interacting with people of Korean ancestry and through taking classes to better understand the culture its values and its language However when she and her husband began ministering in four rural churches in the northeastern United States Tisdale found that she experienced an unexpecte.
