God Speaks to Us and We Proclaim the Word
Within the Christian assembly gathered around word and sacrament, the triune God speaks to each person, to the community of faith, and to the whole creation. God calls the whole people of God to proclaim the living word in worship, in witness, and in lives shaped by freedom in Christ.
In the worship assembly, preaching is a primary form of proclaiming the word of God. Preaching is, therefore, essential to the life of the church. Preaching has long held a place of importance among the many forms of proclamation in the assembly. Today, preaching is the “living and contemporary voice” that links the witness of God’s people throughout the ages with God’s people in this time and place.
