In a society plagued by violence, economical pressure and characterized by majority/minority politics, citizens can lose perspective regarding the sense and value of their participation in this society and become apathetic. In defining the components of a theological-aesthetical theory for perception, an attempt is made to indicate homiletical consequences for equiping listeners in adopting an extensive and intensive vision on their role in society, free from hopelessness and prejudice. Broadened in faith by a panoramical insight into God's goal for society and sharpened in love by a new consciousness of need in society, vision obtains a poetical character. In preaching a poetical vision can be communicated by means of poetical language, which in turn leads to poetical praxis.
