Here’s a responsive reading inspired by 2 Timothy 4:2: “Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not.”
We be Preachers
(inspired by 2 Timothy 4:2)
One: Preachers, preach!
All: In season, out of season;
saying what must be said,
leaving some things unsaid ...
One: we preach.
Here, there, and everywhere,
All: Connecting our lives to the gospel,
and this gospel to our world, we preach.
One: As the Spirit leads, in word and deed,
All: As we uplift and inspire,
as we challenge and change—ourselves and our world….
One: we be preachers!
All: We be preachers! Amen?
