How will delegates to Synod 2019 theologically deliberate on overture #6?

"Preach the Gospel at all times. Use words if necessary." This statement has been used as a good excuse not to use words in verbal witness. A closer look at the data, however, suggests that Paul and the apostles may have amended the phrase.
