Towards the Word is where (my theological education tells me) we should be heading. 'Word and Spirit' go together like 'Father and Son' and 'Word and Sacrament'. Pairs which should be inseparable. The leading of the Spirit is, should be towards God's Word written. Listening to the Spirit is listening to Scripture ... as we affirm Sunday by Sunday in our eucharists after our Old Testament and Epistle readings:
'Hear what the Spirit is saying to the church.
Thanks be to God.'
