Theology On Mission Podcast #12: What is Preaching and Why Bother?

Big Idea: Preaching = Announcing the new world has come in Jesus Christ.

In an image driven culture, why do we still have sermons? What good can a Sunday sermon have when everyone is bombarded by other messages all week long? What is preaching for anyway?
