Cleophus Larue: “It is what is preached that determines what is important.”

The black church with its unquenchable thirst for the preached word has never forgotten what others are apparently struggling, even now, to remember: the church lives in her preaching–always has and always will. It is the church’s preaching that defines its message and mission. It is what is preached that determines what is important.
