Signs of the Kingdom without the Message of the Kingdom?

Zach Nielsen @ Take Your Vitamin Z finds a great quote:

There is a tendency in some quarters today to promote a kind of evangelism without proclamation. Acts of service are done or people are invited to experience Christian worship. But without words of explanation these are like signposts pointing nowhere or, worse still, signposts pointing to our good works. The gospel is good news - a message to be proclaimed, a truth to be taught, a word to be spoken, and a story to be told.
- Tim Chester and Steve Timmis, Total Church, p. 54
