The Christian comic Andy Kind, who often uses his faith as a context for his humour is running a workshop for clergy to improve there preaching skills;

[He] will tackle body language, voice modulation and overall performance skills, aimed at building confidence. Mr Kind said the new skills would help vicars communicate with congregations.

This seems like a good idea, especially as pastors and other religious leaders probably do not get much help on these core skills when they are studying.

Update: On the UCB website he says that one of the things that most annoys him is being referred to as a ‘Christian Comedian’ — sorry Andy.
