Why Preach?

For those of us who pour our time and souls into sermons that some will find refreshing and others will forget in a matter of hours, there is an important reminder as to why we should continually mount the pulpit to preach. Tom Wright gives a good reason!

A church without sermons will soon have a shrivelled mind, then a wayward heart, next an unquiet soul, and finally a misdirected strength.
Tom Wright, Following Jesus: Biblical Reflections on Discipleship (London: SPCK, 1997), xi.

Your yellow text marking is very hard to read on Google Reader; NTW's comment only applies to good teaching and preaching - which itself does not necessarily support existing power structures.
