Proclamation (Part 8 of 10)

Proclamation is talk that speaks faithfully about God and His kingdom. The faithful preacher receives revelation with an open heart, reflects on scripture, tradition and experience with a critical mind, and shares a growing insight and understanding with humility.

This form of talk reduces suspicion by announcing the "good news" that God?s grace demolishes all the artificial distinctions that keep genders and races from having genuine fellowship with one another.

Proclamation is Peter speaking to the council of the church in Jerusalem and affirming that Gentiles were being saved by grace through faith and should not be required to keep the law of Moses. (Acts 15:1-11)
