From the Editor. This month I have reading and preaching on my mind. The two are intimately related, as I hope to demonstrate in my editorial below: "'Reading at Risk' Means Preaching at Risk."
As we continue to republish some of the best of past Ordained Servant articles please take the time to read Larry Wilson's thoughtful article: "Especially the Preaching of the Word" (reprinted from Ordained Servant 9.2, April 2000). Pastor Wilson is presently the organizing pastor of Christ Covenant OPC in Indianapolis, Indiana. He wrote the article when he was pastor of Grace OPC in Columbus Ohio. He is also past general secretary of the CCE.
Remember throughout 2006 we will be posting a sampling of the best of past articles, while I recruit writers for new articles to be published beginning in 2007. At the end of 2007 we will be publishing all of the new articles in a single annual volume. I will be coordinating my editorials with the theme of each republished article.
Blessings in the Lamb,
