Words Communicate...

The words we use and how we use them can sometimes communicate something we don’t want or in a way we did not intend it.  Here are some words taken from actual church bulletins; be careful what you write!

  • Bertha Belch, a missionary from Africa will speak tonight at Calvary Church.  Come tonight and hear Bertha Belch all the way from Africa.
  • The peacemaking meeting scheduled for today has been cancelled due to conflict.
  • Next Thursday there will be tryouts for the church choir.  They need all the help they can get.
  • The senior choir invites any member of the congregation who enjoys sinning to join the choir.
  • At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be “What the Hell?” Come early and listen to our choir practice.
  • Don’t let worry kill you, let the church help.
  • For those of you who have children and don’t know it, we have a nursery downstairs.
  • Potluck supper Sunday @ 5:00 pm.  Prayer and medication to follow.
  • Low self-esteem support group will meet Thursday at the church.  Please use the back door.
  • Weight Watchers will meet @ 7:00pm at the First Presbyterian Church.  Please use the large double door at the side entrance.
 

The lyrics from Hawk Nelson’s song  WORDS:

They've made me feel like a prisoner
They've made me feel set free
They've made me feel like a criminal
Made me feel like a king

They've lifted my heart
To places I'd never been
And they've dragged me down
Back to where I began

Words can build you up
Words can break you down
Start a fire in your heart or
Put it out

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don't wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You…

 

 Our words do matter.  Be careful and choose your words wisely.
