The main subject of this article is how to define preaching. The author argues that preaching is a communication not only involving words but also life and deeds. The investigation works as the point of departure. The young people started out with conformity to the inherited understanding of preaching as words but, when challenged to reflection, opened up the concept to include the significance of how they live among their friends as perhaps the most influential preaching: love in action; goodness without second thoughts of recompensation. Such actions have a potential to reach far outside the church walls. In the second part of the article, the author presents some recent contributions on preaching, which challenge the inherited understanding of preaching only as speech. This is done without devaluating the words. Jesus is the model. His preaching combined words and deeds, as our preaching to young people also should do.
