Yesterday's post "Why preaching is dead" received quite a reaction. Some of my dear friends hadn't read the disclaimer at the bottom explaining I was preparing for a debate on the nature of preaching. Some were worried I had given up on a gift or calling or daring to call into question the means by which Christ had built his church...
