Dec 27 '15 at 12:09 comment added LightCC I'm curious how widely held this view is, especially by those in a position to teach it in protestant seminaries.
Dec 24 '15 at 17:06 comment added Nathaniel is protesting @Stephen Thanks, I've fixed the quote. In some Protestant churches, the pastor preaches from the center of the "stage," whereas in many other churches he is off to the side, with the communion table in the middle. Protestant worship services usually follow some sort of liturgy, though they may eschew the term, which normally includes singing, prayer, offering, reading, preaching, and communion.

fix quote
Dec 24 '15 at 12:46 comment added Stephen Who's worship service? Is it a liturgy? I'm also trying to picture what you mean by architecture et. al. And a quibble: part of the quote is backwards. Proclamation comes before preaching.

Dec 23 '15 at 16:21 comment added Paul Chernoch A nice write up that lists the scripturally sanctioned elements of a worship service with Scripture citations is gotquestions.org/worship-service.html It does not say that preaching is the most important, just that it was practiced by the early church and encouraged by the apostles.

Dec 22 '15 at 16:44 comment added Matt Gutting "Just" 15 minutes! From a Catholic perspective that's a LONG sermon/homily.
Dec 22 '15 at 15:36 comment added Ben Mordecai Just a note: the centrality of preaching is not a universally Protestant truth. Lutherans come to mind as an example of a Protestant tradition who considers the Lord's Supper more central than preaching (which is often just 15 minutes). The Reformed tradition tends to avoid any symbolic focus on objects in general, so what may appear to be a deemphasis on the Lord's Supper is better understood as a deemphasis on the table or the elements themselves.

Dec 21 '15 at 1:33 comment added Nathaniel is protesting @LCIII I imagine that that is part of it, but that seems to focus on contrasting preaching and service (perhaps pastors vs. deacons), not so much preaching contrasted with other elements of a worship service.
Dec 21 '15 at 1:18 comment added LCIII It seemed like they alluded to this in Acts during the passage about the distribution food for the widows...
