"Preaching and Sermon Writing for the 21st Century" with Kim Crawford-Harvie
Have you been hoping to tune-up your sermon writing and preaching skills, and breathe new life into sermon writing and planning? Join Kim Crawford Harvie, Senior Minister at Arlington St. Church and Homiletics Instructor at HDS and ANTS, for a preaching and sermon-writing workshop for colleagues.
Kim K. Crawford Harvie was raised in Concord, Massachusetts and graduated with honors from Middlebury College (Vermont) and Harvard Divinity School. Ordained into the Unitarian Universalist ministry in 1984, she spent the following year as an intern at First Parish in Brewster, Massachusetts. In 1985, she was called to the Universalist Meeting House in Provincetown, Massachusetts, which she served until 1989. In 1989, she was called to Arlington Street Church in Boston, Massachusetts, where she continues to serve as Senior Minister.
In 1992, Rev. Crawford Harvie was the recipient of Harvard Divinity School's First Decade Award. In the same year, Rev. Crawford Harvie also received distinguished alumnae awards from Middlebury College and Concord Carlisle High School. In 1996, the Legacy Foundation named Rev. Crawford Harvie Uncommon Woman of the Year. In 1999, Rev. Crawford Harvie was named one of ten delegates from the United States to Women Waging Peace, an international women's peacemaking initiative. In 2002, the Women's Educational and Industrial Union of Boston honored her as one of 100 outstanding women in the Commonwealth. In 2004, Rev. Crawford Harvie performed the first same-sex wedding in a church in the United States.
