God Does Have a Role

So, yes, the people play a role, but this is not to deny the role of divinity in the preaching process. It was God who inspired the original writers of the text that we use. In addition, God inspires the preacher as she or he attempts to understand the text and also to interpret the needs of the people.

In addition, it is God’s Spirit that inspires and guides the people as they have come to the church. It is God who is guiding in their life and leading them to see their need for the message that is to come.
