The Necessity of Speech

The Word of God is an expression of the very being of the Father

it must be sent -

but also spoken - especially if it is to 'incarnate'

Note the translation:
Psalm 40:6 Sacrifice and offering You did not desire; My ears You have opened. Burnt offering and sin offering You did not require.

LXE : but a body hast thou prepared me

Hebrews 10:5: Sacrifices and offerings you have not desired, but a body have you prepared for me;

talking about the incarnation - it is when the Word enters and embodies flesh

therefore as the church is the sent expression of God, it must speak if it is to enter the world
a silent church is as good as the ever-shouting but never heard creation 
it can change nothing unless the Word is proclaimed audibly

for it is in the spoken Word that God the Spirit enters another
