  32. 32. FOR DISCUSSIONDo we need to rethink what the preaching“office” is?Can “giving the gospel” mean more thanWords only, in much the same way that theSacraments are more than words only? Slide

Wait. What? We’re supposed to preach on the Catechism frequently? Slide
  38. 38. FOR DISCUSSION•Isn’t it time to proclaim clearly that theCatechism is concerned with more than justwhat one thinks or says but also what onedoes?a.Can the same be said of the Catechism’sother sections (Creed, Prayer, Sacraments)?b.By neglecting catechetical preaching, havewe truncated the original Lutheran vision forthe preaching office and for teaching thegospel? Slide

  44. 44. THESIS ONEWe can learn much from the fake StFrancis Quotation. AND we can learnmuch from the real St. Francis. Slide
  45. 45. THESIS TWOIf the Lutheran understanding is thatgood fruit (good works) are bound tofollow the faith that results frompreaching, perhaps we can also say that“actions that preach” follow “wordsthat preach.”Furthermore, there is also a way tounderstand that words that preachfollow actions that preach. Slide
  46. 46. THESIS THREEWe have a great resource for how tolive lives that “preach”: it’s called theSmall Catechism (esp. the TenCommandments section). Slide
